Thanks a lot for this. I couldn't test it yet, but this sounds like
the best solution for now, until Pd gets a really configurable GUI.

Also as my screenshots showed, bold and normal have practically the
same width and height, so the choice a user makes here shouldn't
affect patch layout. I'm just not too sure about the names of the
startup option(s). I think, in the end these options should be named
consistently, like for example this:

  -font-size (now: -font)
  -font-face (now: -typeface)
  -font-weight (now ... or tomorrow: -weight)
