Scott, That wasn't what i was thinking when i suggested it to Dan. If users
tests the fonts with wine, which they can now do using winetricks, i was
hoping that the font names could be remapped/hacked so that the names of the
mscorefonts map to the redhat fonts. If that is successful, the fonts could
be included in wine and we wouldn't need mscorefonts anymore.
