How about this:

We set up a new X2Go subproject called


This subproject contains _all_ extra fonts and mainly is an NSIS installer.

This installer can be used to install those extra fonts into the  
correct directory for X2Go Client _and_ for PyHoca-GUI.

The user/admin can install if he/she wants to install the fonts at  
both locations (%ProgramFiles%\x2golient, %ProgramFiles%\PyHoca-GUI)  
or only at one of them.

The X2Go Client setup.exe should remain rather minimal IMHO.

Absolutely fine!
