Unless fontconfig changed its behaviour my advice was correct. *However* it is
only correct if the other packages you interact with limit themselves to the
few audited fontconfig patterns. If they start being creative (and fontconfig
gives people a *lot* of room to be creative) all bets are of.

I've almost given up on CJK font packages. At this stage if CJK packagers do
not get together to agree on a common way to use fontconfig (and have Behdad
proof it) there is no way to progress. Right now it's a "you have packaged a
CJK font; go directly to bugzilla"
