How many Emacs users will know what change to make in a face to have
@code{} display like the normal text?

What I had in mind was a binary option telling Emacs whether to use a
distinct face for @code.  I think this is way easier to customize than
a face's font.

How will that help?  Someone, somewhere will still dislike the result.

But yes, Emacs can do this: call x-family-fonts with no arguments, and
then filter the returned list to retain only those fonts whose FIXED-P
element is t.
