Just to be clear. When "users" want a to get a new font what is the
ideal software interaction path you expect them to take to find fonts?
 It's not clear that app-install is what you expect them to interact
with. I do sort of expect normal end-users to want additional fonts as
part of day to day document preparation and I wouldn't cast the search
for fonts as a power user or admin activity.
