Good point, but I wonder why this change has been made. It suffices to
look at two attachments to

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=198082

namely

  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=351609
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=351613

which demonstrate that medium hinting used to give better results,
namely for MS fonts. However, this holds at least for Luxi Mono, too ,
the traditional Red Hat/Fedora monospaced default font.
To me, even the current system font looks blurred and uneven when
slight hinting is chosen instead of medium one. ~C
