Fontconfig doesn't know whether the text is being rendered to an LCD screen or
a printer, so fontconfig needs to be told subpixel order and whether hinting is

Problems happen when fontconfig rules blindly override such information (bug
17722, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105797), as well as when
apps/toolkits blindly override fontconfig patterns (this bug).
