I contacted the creator of the font, Hirwen Harendal, to let him know about our
packaging efforts. Besides his general appreciation for the Fedora Fonts SIG,
he also has these comments:

- Gillius is a purified version of the GillSans
- Gillius No2 is made in order to mimic GillSans or be nearest (but not copy it

Should we do some fontconfig magic to set up Gillius No2 as an alternative for
Gill Sans? They're not metrically equivalent.

Also, I'm wondering whether there's a policy about how many and which fonts to
suggest as generic "sans-serif" through fontconfig.
