Summary: Hard to read arabic fonts

You'll be happy to learn that the F9 default font is stated to change to DejaVu
(full), which includes arabic, and will take precedence over whatever we used
before. However I suspect that you may not like it much either – its design was
constrained by lack of support for OpenType BASE

Users being so sensitive to font choices, I don't think we can change font
defaults of a released distribution, and it's getting awfully late to do
anything but tweaking for F9 (fixing a few glyphs right and left). Please test
and report problems early in release cycles if you're not satisfied with our
choices of defaults. (or propose changes to apply to Fedora Devel at F9 release
time ie the start of the F10 cycle)
