I second that. I've been using DejaVu now since the call for testing
first went out and I do love it.  The bold 'issue' is probably something
that will become a non-issue after I'm used to it but right now it does
feel odd having the bold font drastically larger (or at least it feels
drastic but like I say it's different than before which amplifies
things).
