Agreed, and something else that can dramatically reduce the subpixel 
fringing is by changing the FIR filter values in the Freetype LCD 
filter.  There is a setting in my other freetype patch to do that.

Freetype Default     "06 25 44 25 06"
Stronger Gibson      "11 22 38 22 11"

I use the second one for exactly the same reason... I hate fringing.  
The second FIR value reduces the fringes to the point where I don't 
notice them at all.
