Thank you, finally we have legible default font-lock faces.

One problem I see is with `font-lock-string-face'.  Please look at
design guidelines for font-lock colors at the end of the Commentary
section of font-lock.el.  It says:

  Make the face attributes fit the concept as far as possible.
  i.e., function names might be a bold color such as blue, comments
  might be a bright color such as red, character strings might be brown,
  because, err, strings are brown

It seems designers chose "RosyBrown" because it contains the word "Brown".
But actually it is rosy and not brown at all.  Now we have "VioletRed4"
that it more far from brown.

Can we return the to the initial design with a color like say "RosyBrown4"?
