Typically, if you get no answer here, nobody disagrees, and nobody wants
to care about it at the moment.  Please make a bug report.  Please give
some details what exactly should be changed, e.g. which faces should be
used instead of the ones you don't want to use.  Then, I hope someone
will have a look sooner or later.
