Newer fontconfig bits (in CVS) have the ability to exclude fonts based on 
filename.  I'd like to add the ability to exclude them based on 
properties, perhaps I can manage that before fontconfig 2.3 is released.

Using the filename based exclusion, you can eliminate pcf and bdf fonts 
from consideration:

<!-- reject bitmap fonts -->
