The current default font provided by font-manager is Droid Sans mono - which is a excellent font with 1 major drawback - it doesn't render O and 0 with any meaningful difference.

DejaVu Sans Mono Book on the other hand, does render 0 and O with a difference, enabling them to be easily distinguished. For all the uses cases of a monospace font, this is a critical distinction.

Both are installed by default, but Droid Sans is the default active font.

i think this is an important idea.
In the mean time, users will have to make their own default fonts until this is (hopefully) changed.
