What do you mean, "support"? By the CSS specification, it will fall back
to sans-serif if it can't find any of the others.

IMO, it's pointless specifying "Bitstream Vera Sans", because on most
Linux systems, it would be falling back to that anyway. Just because we
don't specify it doesn't mean we "don't support" it.

Heck, Ryan Boren apparently develops with Eclipse on Ubuntu (as I do,
too), and Lloyd Budd is also a strong advocate of Ubuntu.
