SharedMedia fonts not working in Carbonite?

Hello, quick question: is SharedMedia no longer working in Carbonite? No other fonts are showing up except the default 4 for me. Other add-ons seem to have access to the additional fonts from SharedMedia.

Thank-you!

Did Carbonite ever support LibSharedMedia-3.0 and its media plugins? I'm sure I will be corrected, but since Carbonite does not use Ace, LibStub, or CallbackHandler, I doubt it could or would display additional fonts unless they were hard-coded into Carbonite in the first place.

Of course, with Rythal taking over, and given his plans for future development, it would be reasonable to hope it will be added.

I don't think any of those libraries are necessary to use Shared Media. Here's the entire description from the addon:
Inserts media (fonts, bars, borders, etc) into LibSharedMedia's storage. They can then be selected by any addon that supports LibSharedMedia, a lot of them do.
Here's LibSharedMedia's API. While Carbonite doesn't have a copy of LibSharedMedia in its' installation folder, support is, apparently, written in to Carbonite for it.

I always keep a copy of LibSharedMedia (currently LibSharedMedia-3.0) installed and updated. It's a stand-alone addon, so why not?
