Crisp monospace font

Is there a quick hack to have one crisp monospace font, at least on Linux? I saw all the hoopla in previous font-related threads which I don't care to extend but I'm porting a wxWidgets app one UI widget at a time so visual differences are hard to ignore (both good and bad).

Would a GL-style custom solution with a load-time font sliced to an image, wrapped in a CustomTypeface work inside a TableListBox, say? or would other image transforms undo the font's initial sharpness?

Any docs / sample code putting me on the right path would be greatly appreciated.

nvm a charset Image cache works fine in TableListBox, even async.
