I vote for:

pd -font=[whatever font you like]

Failing that, I vote for it looking the way that we are used to seeing
it; courier 12 bold. I especially dislike the way Vera looks in these
screen shots. If you're going to use a font like that then I beg you to
make it anti-aliased and stop my eyeballs from doing backflips.
