[Fontconfig] Changing to hintslight globally by default + hintfull for otfs

So there is a change of strategy over at FreeType.
Someone thought my attempt to leave all the font rendering configuration
to fontconfig is misguided and pointed out that hintslight commonly
translates to FT_LOAD_TARGET_LIGHT, which implies what I want to achieve
with hintfull for .otfs. So FreeType master changed the meaning of
FT_LOAD_TARGET_LIGHT to "Use native Y-only-snapping if driver and font
supports it and Y-only autohinter otherwise". This encompasses future
additions to the LIGHT mode, e.g. once ClearType is fully supported.
This makes my per-font-format-configuration obsolete to me because this
way is much more elegant. You can ignore my posted .confs.
What still stands is my wish to set hintslight as the global default. I
saw that Ubuntu ships with several additional confs, I attached the
patches from the Ubuntu package. How about upstreaming this? They use
10-antialias.conf, 10-hinting.conf and 10-hinting-slight.conf by default.
