Very useful, indeed.

(I noticed that fontconfig gets confused by the existence of the Contour 
variants. When asking for Jaja:weight=light, it returns Jaja Contour 
Light instead. I can "solve" that by setting "Preferred Family" in the 
TTF Names to "Jaja Contour" so that the Contour variants are a family 
of their own. Not sure if that is the best solution.)
