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.
