--- Comment #2 from Caolan McNamara <caolanm at redhat.com> ---
Little test case here...
$ yum -y install google-droid-sans-fonts lohit-devanagari-fonts
$ LANG=hi_IN fc-match "foo"
DroidSansDevanagari-Regular.ttf: "Droid Sans" "Regular"
$ mv /etc/fonts/conf.d/65-google-droid-sans.conf
$ LANG=hi_IN fc-match "foo"
Lohit-Devanagari.ttf: "Lohit Devanagari" "Regular"

so with our default congigs fontconfig prefers "Droid Sans" to "Lohit
Devanagari" for hi_IN when both are available. So if Lohit is better than Droid
it should be a higher priority. One way (I believe) is to give its config a
lower number than that of Droid. Presumably there are a bunch of other ways to
do this, so moving to the fontconfig maintainer to indicate the right way to
resolve that.
