The commit message for the change from Orchid to MediumOrchid4 is:

So presumably some people had difficulty reading Orchid on light
backgrounds?

Perhaps a different colour could be used in your use case that would
still be legible, but separate the doc string from the keywords.  Do you
have a suggestion?
