   To be able to remove bold properties from all used faces and to make
   other transformations that fit faces into used displays, I propose
   to add a new hook `custom-define-face-hook'.  

I like this approach, but on testing it, I find that your patch fails
on my screen, with its 135 dpi resolutionboth for
bold properties in the buffer list and in the mode line.

This is with a 10x20 font:


The default font works fine.  However, I don't use it because it is
too small for this resolution -- just as you say.

I have never been able to figure out what to do, but am using the
patch that Miles produced more than a year ago, which works fine and
does not exhibit any race conditions, which Miles worried about.  (I
think the patch could be committed to CVS, but do not dare do it
