Ok. As a compromise on this, we're going to test the following:

1) Enable the new colour filtering by default
2) Automatically disable it on monospace fonts at under 12 pixels

This should handle the most obvious case where people are likely to 
notice the loss in contrast, while giving most people the benefit of the 
new code. There's the potential for some further fine-tuning of this, 
but now that we've got the functionality to be able to do that tuning 
I'm confident that it'll be done right between now and the final 
release. Thanks very much to Scott for implementing this.
