Hi Igor,

thanks for the feedback As one can see in the poll
http://www.doodle.ch/participation.html?pollId=9y9r6nr2imci8g38, most
users wanted to see NiceFonts installed by default. That's what I did,
knowing it was imperfect. I asked author of NiceFonts (Juan Vuletich)
for help but he doesn't have much time. I can't fix these problems

If someone wants to help, changeset is at:
If you want to vote for the removal of this package, please do.

If you have any opinion, it's the right place :-). Thank you very much
for your feedback.
