[needs-packaging] Include TIresias fonts family in next release

Bug Description

<quote who="Peter Korn" where="gnome-devel-list">
I just received word (see attached) that the Tiresias family of fonts,
designed by the Royal National Institute for the Blind for clarity and
ease of recognition by folks with vision impairments are now available
under GPL v3. The family includes fonts recommended and tested for use
in signage, print, television, and computer use (the latter is "PCFont"
- see http://www.tiresias.org/fonts/pcfont/about_pc.htm for details).

I would like to recommend we consider redistributing these fonts with
GNOME (or at least link to them so that UNIX distros that include GNOME
might become aware of and potentially include this font).

It could be a really good idea if Ubuntu could provide packages for those fonts.
