We need to guarantee that default faces don't produce illegible
combinations of foreground and background colors.  This can be achieved
by using :distant-foreground on the default face definition.
A user redefining the face can also manually adjust :distant-foreground
to use another color if the user doesn't like the default color
used when the distance is more than the threshold.

Automatic contrast adjustment is useful too when the user has no preference
for a color to use instead of an illegible color and want to adjust all
such colors automatically.  There is a request in bug#16974 for this feature.
