I'm sorry, I was responding more to past comments than the specific
message I was replying to.

So, the goal of hi-lock-face-regexp is to select a set of fonts. I
guess the custom interface would expose simple options to the user,
for example, "Fixed Colors", "Theme Colors", and for each option the
appropriate regexp would be assigned.  Is that right?

In that case, why not have a variable hi-lock-use-theme-colors and use
that to select either the current default list, or one with generic
names.

That said, I still believe the user should see the color that will be
applied, and that this be accomplished without undue complexity.
