Unfortunately, no it doesn't.  Whichever hook is run last, still
sets the colors for all other modes.

I tried a few variations on that too, and they all do
essentially the same.  I've used copy-face instead of setq to
change the font-lock- face.  I've used set-face-foreground to
change the color, and have tried it on the font-lock- face after
it has been changed, and on the fld-font-lock- face before it is
used to set the font-lock- face.

In all cases the results were the same.

I have figured out how to write a major mode of my own that can
be changed independantly of others, but I'd like to figure out
how to do it entirely within the init files and not have to
modify any distribution lisp files.
