Quoting the wishlist on the wiki:

If you look at my first email I said that I did not want all the
decorations in text if it is not really functional. But as Alan pointed
out: people who have low color perception don't have much use of
different colors and need the decorations to really tell things apart.
I think he has a point there, but I'm also thinking that this perhaps is
a minority group, which should have 'special' syntax highlight bundles
which fit their needs.
As for the syntax highlight bundles with different background colours,
I'm all for it. I really don't like white backgrounds while coding, so
first thing I do when using a default bundle is converting it to black
Perhaps we should setup a collection point so that everyone can send in
their adapted versions of the syntax highlight bundles. This is of course
meant as a temporary solution while Alan sorts out a proper one ;)
