Attached are two screenshots. Screenshot1 is with bitstream and dejavu having higher priorities and Screenshot2 is AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni having higher priority.
Now, I can't really see why the Latin glyphs in that font are "ugly". I and many other users (that's why I changed the priority, because many other Chinese users complained to me) prefer to have a consistent typeface on their desktop.

Besides, as font selection is a personal matter there will never be one default setting which fits all users.
I hope, that we can have a GUI some day which allows users to easily set their preferred font preferences and settings (hinting, anti-aliasing, bitmaps) without the need to hack fontconfig's configuration files by hand. Maybe we can have that already in Hardy, I will surely discuss this issue on the upcoming UDS in the end of this month.
