    It makes emacs use `overstriking' (drawing text again shifted by one
    pixel) to simulate bold-face for fonts that have no bold version.  The
    same technique is used by programs such as gnome-terminal.

Presuming the code is correct, this has to be better than completely
failing to support boldness for these fonts.  Thanks for thinking of
