I just tried that.
Yes you can.
But it's just as slow as the non-fontconfig bitmap font rendering.
For me anyway. Caveat: I'm using the pcf fonts from the xfonts-efont-unicode
Debian package for proper unicode and japanese character support (listed as
'Biwidth' in the fc-list output). :/

With a pure truetype font I do indeed get no speed difference between
ColorTiled and non-ColorTiled mode though.

I can haz fast bitmap fonts in my terminal?
