bug#2454: 23.0.90; Colored Compilation Status is hard on the eyes

Sure.

I'm referring to the color used by the compilation status in the mode line (one 
of :exit[0], :exit[SOMETHING ELSE], or :run).  The orange and green used here 
hurt. The red is passable, but still not good.

I believe the mode-line and mode-line inactive faces contribute the background 
color and compilation-error, compilation-warning, and compilation-info 
contribute the foreground color.  The problem is that they don't contrast well 
with the mode-line's default bg colors.  Orange on Gray75 hurts my eyes, as 
does Green3 on Gray75, or Red1 on Gray75. 

I'd suggest using darker foreground colors, so they don't hurt my eyes.

Can you please explain what do you mean?

If you are talking about the color used to display "error" in case there
was a compilation error, that color is loud by design.
