Added fonts with new glyphs (e.g. Hebrew).

The Liberation font family lacks many non-European glyphs, and it can
not grow due to licensing issues.[1] Nevertheless, the same designers
behind the original Liberation fonts were commissioned to create a new
set of fonts with the same aims called Croscore[2]. The fonts they produced
are under a license that allows for growth, but what matters here is
that croscore gives us a lot more of glyphs.[2]

Unfortunately we can't just use them as drop-in replacements for
Liberation, since one pixel here and there will make tests fail,
but we can have them as fallbacks for missing glyphs.
