 Replying to [comment:2 ryandesign]:
 > Is using CoreText better than using fontconfig?

 I believe so. Fontconfig often causes long time delays when "refreshing
 the font database". On Mac and Windows that's particularly painful as each
 piece of software maintains its own database and users often assume the
 sofware froze and there's no way to predict when that might happen to warn
 the users. It's probably better in MacPorts and it should be more uniform
 there (just one database for the whole MP installation), but still.
