Martin, thank you for your support on this feature request.

Alexandre, Fontmatrix, allows you to tag your fonts but I don't think it 
has control over deactivating system fonts. I have tested (for the first 
time) Fontmatrix 0.4.2 from on Ubuntu 8.04.1 and it does 
bring back good memories of using extensis suitcase (a mac font manager 
any designer will know) except for the fact that Fontmatrix does not 
allow you to deactivate system fonts. Don't get me wrong, the option is 
there, but after deactivating a group of fonts, one by one, checkboxes 
are still there... and I still see them all in GIMP. Although this is 
not a workaround for me yet, I will looking into this project as it is 
relevant to managing fonts.
