I can't relate these two. By the same reasoning, Fraktur fonts
compete with modern Latin fonts, Urdu fonts would compete with Arabic
fonts, and Hindi fonts would compete with Marathi fonts.
I suspect the only reason that does not happen is we have a lot more
CJK packages than Arabic packages (and no Fraktur packages that I know
Font packagers competing with each other in pushing their fonts is
acceptable either. If that doesn't stop, we should perhaps centralize
our fontconfig configuration files to avoid such fontconfig wars.
It's not really a centralizing problem. If we had a clear "official"
clean way to write fontconfig cjk rules I'd happily crack down on
packagers not using them. Right now we haven't really, so I refrain.
Nevertheless CJK fonts easily account for 80% of our reported font
It would be nice if our intended priorities and fontconfig settings
for CJK fonts were documented somewhere (for every concerned locale).
Then I could pester Behdad so he tells us how to achieve them cleanly.
Right now, I'm not even sure this is clear to anyone but the concerned
packagers. And every time I open a CJK fontconfig file I see magic of
the blackest sort.
