He means DejaVu is an extension of Vera - i.e. they already use Vera. I agree that they need to lower the hinting - looks too blurry on my screen.
I also completely agree with you about video editing though.
Hinting will tend to reduce blurryness, though in the process the font shape will be somewhat distorted. The problem with reducing the default level of hinting is that Vera and derivatives end up with very bad colour fringing as a result (if you're using sub-pixel anti aliasing - if you're not, then that's obviously not a problem)
The current defaults are to use full hinting for best contrast and sub-pixel configuration, and medium hinting for best shapes. Arguing over which of these is the best default tends to result in religious warfare, but we've made a change to the font configuration that should improve font shaping for people using subpixel setups.

Lower or increase? LOL
