I have stumbled on a tiny problem recently... Our team has decided to
use only open fonts. While that is great, it turns out that the version
on my Linux desktop has a ton of free fonts, whereas their Windows
systems have barely anything.

The only thing we had in common was the Dejavu family. We did migrate
our documents to that, but it wasn't that great an experience because of
many formatting changes. That would've been avoided by using the
Liberation family.

Would it be possible to add a few open fonts? I'm thinking that support
for the Liberation fonts should be there 100%, since they are metric
compatible with the ones commonly used (Arial, TNR. Courier New).

What other ones should be seen as 'must have'?
