I had a couple of thoughts over the weekend about what fontconfig places
in cache files for filenames, and how cache files are managed.
1. Moving cache files to /var/cache means that caches are not path
relative, which is to say they have a specific relation to an
2. In-tree cache files are "bad" for packaging and many other
3. Filename handling in fontconfig is a kludgy mess
Mixing these two statements together, I'm wondering if it makes sense to
A. Allow cache files *only* in /var/cache or ~/.fonts.cache-2
B. Put absolute path names in the cache files
Does this make sense? Or am I just crazy?
