Re: (too) big font on console?

it is very hard to show that by a picture, it is very dependent of
particular, physical install - but maybe this photo will be sufficient: [1]

From the other hand, I changed my mind a little: Spleen family looks
ugly (it is a matter of personal taste, of course) and it is better
for NetBSD to provide concise font style for all available sizes.

BTW: I found commit[2] that suggest that a Terminus font family
is double-licensed (BSD and OFL). Unfortunately source package
doesn't provide a separate license for BSD, and commits in Free
repo aren't concise about licensing[2, 4, 5] (whole package or 
parts? for FreeBSD or all BSD's?).

Terminus[3] itself offers many different sizes and looks really nice.

     Weights: normal and bold (except for 6x12), plus CRT VGA-bold for 8x14
     and 8x16"
