Comment (by yawning):

 This should be fine on Windows, the whitelist has MS P Gothic in it IIRC

 I'm not sure what the sensible thing to do on Linux is.  I don't think we
 can re-distribute either Mona or IPA Mona with the bundle due to file size
 reasons.  I would also hazard a guess that most Linux systems do not have
 either installed, so simply whistling them would make the fingerprinting
 situation worse.
