A warning: the fixed version of 69-odofonts.conf causes Odosung to
be preferred for both Serif and Sans fonts, even in English - and it
is faint and smaller than the normal DejaVu : this affects menus and
dialogs in gtk applications, even in an English locale.

So, most people won't want this (Chinese users might prefer it).
For the future, I guess I'm going to have to give an example of how
to edit such old conf files in the book.
