If I open the app I can change the size of the font and this change persists even if I close and re-open the app, but changes in the font itself do not persist. I've played around with the source code, but can't seem to find what I'd need to modify to set a new default font (14pt Menlo, for example).

Currently there is no way to change the font family - it is always left to the system to specify the font, GUI is just asking for fixed-width font. It is the default font for a given user so in theory by changing the default fixed width font for your account you will also change it in the GUI. You could add it to the wish list, though.
