Hi Thorsten,

now that buster has been released (congratulations to everyone!), I
think we should move forward with this.

My proposed plan of actions is:

 - Announce new virtual package(s) on d-devel
 - Upload soundfonts packages prividing the virtual packages and 
   calling the corresponding u-a invokation
 - Patch libraries using soundfonts to fallback to the new default 
   soundfont path and add dependencies accordingly (fluidsynth, 
   timidity, anything else?)

Anything that I forgot?


 - Fabian
