You're all a bunch of scrubs. I play DF with Monoscii and the X-Box Kinect.

Okay but for real... is there any way to actual get the 1x1 pixel going, but also have truetype on over it?  And does this have any notable FPS changes?

In all seriousness, I highly doubt there are any real FPS improvements. Specifically, there is a chance that the GFPS (Graphics FPS, number in parens) can improve, but this would do next to nothing to the CFPS (Computational FPS).
While I haven't messed with TrueType in DF (I actually launch with Steam, which then intercepts F12 for screenshots), IIRC it takes the tile height to set the font size. With a tile height of 1px...yeah.
