Emacs always does the right thing.  By definition.

Anyway, I think we should stop the dispute about the colors.  Color
preferences are deeply individual, and whatever we do, someone will
want to change the defaults.  So we should simply offer enough color
themes to cover most of the spectrum (pun intended), and let the users
choose what they like, preferably from the "intro" buffer that is
being discussed in a parallel thread, or from some other command that
shows the available themes and asks the user to pick one.
