I guess I belong to the latter group.  I see the difference, but I'm
not bothered by it.  What matters is that the font should be
monospaced; beyond that, we have very little to expect.

AFAIU, the main point of specifying that face was to have a face
different from default that is still monospaced.  And both fonts
satisfy that condition, so I don't see any further problems we should
care about.
