I wonder how difficult it would be to do the following:

1. Continue to have the current situation, which we might call the "long 
form" as one alternative.

2. Create an additional user-selectable "short form", in which there is 
only one listing for each typeface: eg, Luxi Sans, Luxi Serif, Nimbus 
Roman, etc.  Where a bold version is available, a button could be 
clicked, if not the button would be greyed out (unclickable).  Another 
positive side effect would be to dramatically shorten the font list.
