Hinting is turned off for text displayed on desktop?

1) Thanks for such an awesome utility! Geek Tool rocks!

2) Subpixel Hinting seems to be turned off for the text that Geek Tool overlays on the desktop. Is this for any particular reason? It makes the text appear blocky and a bit harder to read. See the below images for how text is rendered differently in TextEdit (with hinting, looks good) vs. Geek Tool (without hinting, looks blocky).

I'm sure this wasn't an explicit design decision to turn hinting off, but it's being disabled for some other reason. Any ideas?
