I maintain multiple packages that use core fonts. I do not have the
expertise to migrate those packages, all of which are large and
complex, to a new font system. I have neither the time nor the
interest to gain that expertise. The upstreams, save one, have
expressed 0 interest in doing that work themselves. The one that has
expressed interest, XEmacs, currently has a half-baked fontconfig/Xft
implementation that is stalled because the programmers that started it
went on to other things without finishing it. So it appears to me
that this message is really saying:
1) I'm going to nag you forever about a problem you can't fix.
2) There is no way to make me stop nagging you.
I want a switch that says, "Yes, I know this application uses core
fonts. It isn't going to change. Shut up, please."
