Courier, I loathe and always have done, but unless things change in the publishing world, I guess that if I ever do write that book, I'll have to export the manuscript in Courier ... <ugh>!

This isn't so much the case anymore. Most publishing houses accept the various incarnations of Times (I use Times New Roman) with no problem. As long as it's not hand-written in green ink on yellow legal pads, I don't think they are as fussy as they used to be.
In the old days, they relied on using the standard Courier 12pt to estimate book length (and hence production costs). Now they usually also ask for a digital copy of the manuscript (sometimes that's all they want) and use the computer-generated word count for estimates.
If in doubt, just check with them. (And you always can send them a manuscript in Courier 12pt, if you really want to. )
Things do change in the publishing world, it just takes them a decade or two longer than everyone else.

I like it because it is simple and clean. I find it easier to read than any other font.

I spend most of my time in terminals and text editors as a programmer, and Vera is the first font to make me give up Misc Fixed in almost 20 years.

I did but I don't recall exactly what prevented me from using it. Most fonts failed me over the years because they would look stunning at particular sizes, and then disgusting at others.
