--- Comment #17 from Michael Catanzaro <mcatanzaro at igalia.com> ---
No, this one is my patch; Martin's was the one I labeled "test patch."

I was about to say "we don't look at the GTK+ font settings at all" -- we certainly do not do so in the freetype platform backend -- but actually I'm simply wrong. If I turn off antialiasing in Tweak Tool then the pages we load look terrible. If I turn hinting down from Medium to Slight (this triggers use of the freetype autohinter instead of the font's native hinting) then the problem with these fonts goes away. I don't know where we are checking these settings though.
