--- Comment #23 from Khaled Hosny <khaledhosny at eglug.org> ---
Hiding CTL or CJK font setting by default and having to expand them or switch
to a different tab is bad than status quo. Currently if I enable CTL and CJK
controls then all my font settings are visible in one place and I can switch
between them with little effort, which is not the case with the suggestion

I suggest simply dropping the setting and keeping things as they are now. This
is the default for new installations for some time now already and I don’t see
people screaming bloody murder about the extra controls.

On the long run, we should do away with the idea of Western, CTL and CJK font
settings and do like, IIRC, what Microsoft Office is doing now and have a
single font chooser that sets the fonts for all the three to the same font, the
idea that there are only three categories of scripts is outdated and absured
anyway, why I would want to set the same font for Devanagari, Thai and Arabic;
there is absolutely nothing in common between the three.
