Yup, it is a bit strange. I think that you could press the "Review"
button and just leave the comment. Well, you can't do inline comments
this way.

I see the following:

$> grep lucidasansunicode officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/VCL.xcu
| wc -l
$> grep "Lucida Sans Unicode"
officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/VCL.xcu | wc -l

=> "Lucida Sans Unicode" is used many times and "lucidasansunicode" only
3 times.

You could see that "lucidasansunicode" is used only in the second part
of the VCL.xcu file where you define substitutes for particular fonts.
Only this second part uses the lowercase-condensed font names.

=> I still think that you should use only the normal font name (Lucida
Sans Unicode) in the first part where you define fonts for each locale.

I am not aware of any planed clean up. Well, it would be great to rework
the code and use the same font names everywhere and avoid the confusion.
