SuperTuxKart without Noto Fonts Packages Possible?

Earlier I was looking for a nice font to use the sticky notes program in MATE, when I found that there were like fifty bazillion Noto fonts installed in a million different languages. So that was kind of annoying to scroll through.

Turns out they were installed along with SuperTuxKart. That's fine, things require things, I'm OK with that, but every font option in every language for everyone who uses the program? That seems like a configuration error. I suppose it would be fine if we didn't have to scroll through a huge list of things we will never use literally every time we access the fonts list on our system.

I tried an "apt install --no-install-recommends supertuxkart", but that will still pull down all of the following packages:

fonts-noto-color-emoji
fonts-noto-core
fonts-noto-extra
fonts-noto-ui-core
fonts-noto-ui-extra

Anyone know how to, at the very least, limit this to a single language (English)?

I suppose this is one area where using an AppImage would be beneficial.

Huh. It's been two years since that bug report. I suppose it's not a priority for the maintainers.
