That could work too.  How about combining the defface redefinition with
a change to face-font-family-alternatives so that this will work on
Windows and Mac?  (I'm not sure what the appropriate fonts are for those
platforms, though.)

(defface fixed-pitch
  '((t :family "Monospace"))
  "The basic fixed-pitch face."
  :group 'basic-faces)

(defcustom face-font-family-alternatives
  '(("Monospace" "DejaVu Sans Mono" [WINDOWS AND MAC FONTS]  "fixed")

What font should we use for variable-pitch?  Bitstream Vera Sans?

That could be useful, if Handa (or someone else) wants to implement it.
Otherwise, I guess it's not crucial.
