The two main issues are:
1) Some technical problem with the fontconfig configuration causes
Japanese desktops to break if Droid is even installed.
2) Coverage: Droid may be ok for the US, and asian languages have their
entirely separate fonts anyway, but Dejavu is much better in covering
WGL and Eastern Europe. Droid will probably give users there a miserable
mixture of fonts
Given #2, especially... what is better about Droid Sans that makes it
a better option over DejaVu?
