As I'm sure you can understand Jason, I try to make the program look and work
well out of the box with no configuration for as many users as possible. 
Clearly with this criteria it makes sense to draw bold text 'the correct way'
by default.

Leaving that aside, I thought that if a font didn't come with a bold variety
that one would be generated automatically which would look adequate, though not
as good as a one tuned by a font designer.  This does seem to be happening in
gnome applications but not KDE ones.  There are some patches floating around
for Qt which add support for this but apparently they have not been reviewed or
merged yet:

Or you could look for a bold version of Andale Mono on the web, a quick Google
turns up several results though the publishers do charge about 30$ for it.
