That is not what I am asking. I want to change the
meaning of the "monospace" font as offered by
fontconfig, so that when choosing the font "monospace"
as my terminal font in

   Preferences -> Font -> Terminal Font

(or any other font selection option that knows about
fontconfig) it comes with whatever i have set up as
being the monospace font.

I want to change it system-wide.

Currently it seems that the monospace font is
"luxi mono". I want it to be "Bitstream Vera Sans
