That sounds good.

Another data point:
Another terminal is screen which is also used under tmux.
I get white status line there.
dark-mode turns it blue.
I am fine with that behaviour.
I would not mind having to turn +status manually on under tmux either.
I do not actually use a color terminal except to start emacs or tmux
at which point it turns into dumb or screen TERM.
At the moment, I have to start gforth under Emacs shell like this:
gforth -e -status

Is it possible to turn command line editing off manually now?

Is it possible to turn echoing off manually now?
