Well...  I'm reminded of the old joke, "Doctor it hurts when I do
*this*" "Don't *do* that."

Certainly turning off antialiasing is one way to eliminate blur, but
to me that seems totally beside the point.  If someone wants
antialiasing for other reasons, then they're left with this problem.

I could see accepting a patch to add a short bit that turning
anti-aliasing off as an alternative solution, although I'm skeptical
that's going to be a practical solution for most people.
