Hey, stop making my issues moot!  Some time ago I didn't
have any success with this...

I'm a Debian guy myself, RPM is not my desk, sorry.

You don't think too high about apt-get, do you?  Or about
the packager? :) Jokes aside: do you mean the sources and
the fonts are so closely interrelated that separate version
numbers don't make any sense?  Your disappointing answer
makes me feel like that (at least you are faithful to the
principles articulated in the interview)...  Even then, it
may be useful to split out the arch-indep stuff into a
separate package to make Debian happy, but you don't have to
care about that at all.
