[Fontconfig] Problem with bitmap fonts

I've got this bug report against pango . In short, the problem is that
fontconfig prefers bitmap fonts of the right family name but arbitrarily far
away font size over fonts with the right font size (perhaps non-bitmap) but
wrong family name. Sounds useful at first, except that if you happen to ask
for "Times 96" and get a bitmap "Times" 12px, that doesn't really help.
Maybe a bitmap font should only be considered usable for sizes from 50% to
200% of its pixelsize?
