    The fonts themselves can be just symlinks, that will cut it down to
    about 7MB. If you use some other ttf fonts that only support a small charset,
    such as Latin1, everything will be much smaller, the MS fonts contain
    around 1200 glyphs each.

    possibly, it is question of processing speed vs. storage. The whole
    font management is going to be completely changed in any case.
