Sorry, I misread this.  So in order to have sserife.fon beat
wine_sserife.fon I'd have to copy it into my Windows dir?  I'd like
this to happen automatically if sserife.fon existed in my fontconfig
path.  (Yes, I know it won't at the moment because we ignore all
bitmap fonts in the fontconfig path, but I think this should be
changed to let .fon bitmap through).

True, and maybe that usurps my objection above.
