Personally, Consolas 8pt looks fine with me. Comparing the actual pixel
heights of the letters suggest that both (Consolas 8pt and CourierNew
8pt) are kind of the same. I'd expect there's a standard size used
throughout TSVN (with regards to how large standard fonts are) and that
should be kept IMO.
