[Re-sending with the appropriate cc: line, and with apologies to Chong
Yidong for the duplicate email.]

Thank you. In the tsdh-dark theme, the successful exit status is now
much more legible on an active mode line. However, it is much less
legible on an inactive mode line. The rest of the mode line text (in
grey on grey) is also hard to read. I really think the bug is that the
wrong light-/dark-background version of the face is chosen, and no
amount of compromise with face colours will fix that. (Perhaps it
could be made a convention that a dark-background theme must have a
dark-background mode-line?)
