Yes that part of my original patch will need to be removed too. It should make
fontconfig prefer non-color fonts over ones with color, although it will still
pick color fonts for characters not available in non-color fonts (which is why
the font rejection code is required). I don't know if there is any way to do
that without the FC_COLOR property.
