Whether it's `desirable' or not, I really don't know -- but it seems
like a non-unreasonable default position.

As for possible, of course it's sometimes not possible, but quite often
it is.  When it isn't possible to use _literally_ the same color, I'll
usually try to use something similar in spirit, e.g., if the existing
default is something like dark-blue, which looks good against a
light-background, but not against a dark-background, I'll often try to
use a light-blue for the dark-background case instead.

And lastly, please don't be so condescending.  We may have different
tastes than you in some cases, but we aren't idiots.

Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it
has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
