[packagekit] FontConfig iso15924 tag for autoinstallation via PackageKit

Dear FontConfig & PackageKit developers,

I've recently worked on automatic font installation in Gecko-based 
applications using PackageKit [1]. The current patch to add 
notifications for missing glyphs in Gecko relies on script tags as 
defined in iso15924 [2] [3]. So it would help if fontconfig & PackageKit 
would be able to handle some metadata for these script tags, for example 
:script=Khmr. Also, I'm interested in automatic installation of math 
fonts, so it would be important to support the code "Zmth=Mathematical 
notation" too.
