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

(Actually I can do this later.) --Arthur2e5 (talk) 12:42, 28 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Formatting suggestion

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.
