> What problem would that solve?
Well, I'm a noob here, so please consider me being Joe User. I simply
want to install a font (i.e., copying it to a directory managed by
fontconfig), and the cache file gets automatically updated. *How* to
achieve that I don't care.
I could even imagine that fontconfig provides an `fc-font-install'
command – together with some advertising –, being a simple wrapper for
`cp && fc-cache', in case this would be the solution to go.

What do you mean with `runtime cache update'?

Replace `daemon' with any working solution.
