Courier Dark is my current choice for a monospaced font since it looks good on a eInk display but a factory version with the advanced settings would be nice.

I have two friends who are dyslexic and whole they would agree with the other comment that the weight hasn't been modified enough for an eInk screen, it still makes reading significantly easier for them; far more so than any traditional monospaced font would. To just label it filler seems a little ignorant to me. I say kudos to Kobo for including it; it's made their device accessible for two people I know.
