Yeah, Hoary has support for this in the Desktop Preferences. For Hinting, you can choose None, Slight, Medium, and Full and it has an example of each. I'd post a screenshot, but pressing Print Screen results a message saying gnome-panel-screenshot can't be found, and a quick trip to Synaptic turns up zilch.
