I have no problem with this, all I'm asking is the *order* of family
names returned by fontconfig to be consistent in all occasions. If in
one case (FcFontList) it's sorted with locale while in another case
(FcFreeTypeQueryFace) it's not, then third party libraries like Qt will
have difficulty implementing its own font matching mechanism based on
