I would like to make a proposal: let's include Linux Libertine G fonts
into LibreOffice. LibreOffice should take advantage of the improved
implementation of Graphite font technology.

Documentation: http://www.numbertext.org/linux/fontfeatures.pdf
Home page: http://www.numbertext.org/linux/

These fonts provide solution/workaround for the following issues:
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=86594 Asterisk (*) as
footnote-numbering too small (double superscript)
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=92730 Numbering type
"One, Two, Three..." and "1st, 2nd, 3rd..." needed
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=33553 right align
footnote numbers
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=18326 Footnote number
greater than 99 are missing extra space before text
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4638 ligature support

The support of the predecessor of this font (Magyar Linux Libertine,
--with-magyarlinuxlibertine) would be removed. These new fonts would
be configured with the --with-fonts switch. I can do the integration
into the build but before that I'd like to have your feedback.
