Nice way to do Bold

I have pushed a new method to do terminal bold that seems to work
well. See screenshot.

Basically I use a brightness of 7/8th for non-bold, and for bold a 1
pixel shadow of 13/16ths brightness. After hours of experimentation
that seems to provide the best results for all fonts.

This is much more pleasing than the method of doubling-rendering the
font 1 pixel to the left.
