Sorry, I didn't address this part of your reply. There is a
corresponding setting in OS X, "Font smoothing style", that appears to
do something similar.  And maybe it's just me, but when it comes to
editing text with fixed-size fonts I'd rather go with no anti-aliasing
at all.  I'm not asking for changing any defaults, it would just be
nice to have the option.
