Makes sense.

Didn't do a complete review, but noticed the following:

The last two directories no longer exist[1]; just use /usr/share/fonts
(provided that subdirectories are automatically included).  It would
also be nice if the updated URW fonts[2] would also be installed under
e.g. /usr/share/fonts/urw-base35.  You may also want to poppler-data
instead of the bundled CMap's, as in Fedora[3].
