the current urw-fonts upstream told me the fonts were renamed by URW and he
doesn't know why. Tagoh, will you add providing an alias for old names in
fontconfig? It will resolve this issue.

The Cyrillic glyphs were dropped because, frankly, they were of *very* poor
quality, the quality was simply not up to the standard required for a printable
font. And at least as important, in the majority cases, the Cyrillic did not
fit with the typeface style of the rest of the glyphs in the fonts.
