Auto-generation of "use xxx font" config via a script?
Many parts of the config are trivial and can be generated using a shell script with (well) hard-coded templates.
The script should be able to generate these parts:
- aliasing from one font to another
- Generic family bidirectional alias generation (like 30-metric-aliases.conf)
- Optionally, hardcode a list of what 30-metric-aliases.conf knows. That's the most comprehensive list for Latin fonts I have seen.
- preferring one font for a given family
I think it's better to collapse all long block codes into hyperlinks. Move Arabic, Japanese, Chinese subsection content to Arabic/Font configuration, Japanese/Font configuration, Chinese/Font configuration and keep only a hyperlink inside the subsections with brief details.
