There's a whole bunch of things that can have a colour when customising
a face -- like stipple background/foreground, overline, etc.  I don't
know whether it makes sense to special-case just the (main) background
colour...  but perhaps that does make sense, because it's a pretty
common thing to customise.  And showing the colour as a background
colour would give a more correct impressions.

But might be confusing if that one thing behaved differently than the
rest.

Anybody have an opinion here?
