On Debian and Ubuntu, it'll be very easy to support since the  
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono font is in the package system.  I think that  
font is also included in any GNOME install, so that covers most GNU/ 
Linux users.

The hard part is Windows and Mac OS X.  We could require people to  
install the font seperately, but I'd rather have it just work out of  
the box.
