Do we actually want to enable it just for gnome-shell? Shouldn't the
shell use the same font as the apps?
Yeah. In GNOME 3 we only want to have one UI font that covers the
existing Desktop, Application, and Window Title font configurations.
For this our current favorite (of the free and easy category) is Droid
Sans. For the Document font I'm not really sure where we use this
right now but might Liberation Sans be a better default choice for
document text than DejaVu? It was designed to closely match the
details of another popular document font - in fact iirc by the same
designer/hinter as Droid.
For fixed width I have seen some objections to using Droid mono - I
wonder if we can get these comments to the upstream folks somehow.
