It is not easy to define a set of colors that go well with each other in
inverted scenario, especially if you would like to obey some other
criteria, like say equal contrast (as in Solarized) or very low-, high
contrast. Personally I don't think every theme need to have both, since
not everyone is switching their themes based on dayoftime.

By the way, the code you posted in another message is interested. Wonder
if one could get some input from a webcam, analyze light intensity and
switch dark/light Emacs or even pick theme shades based on the image
recorded; similar as they do here


It would be a bit like modern TVs with background LED lightning; no idea
if it would be usable at all; but fun? :-)
