Actually I'm very picky with my colors! I call
my color scheme "Orange Sunshine" after ALD-52.
Nah, I just made that up :)

(pnmtopng: 12 colors found)

However I'm unsure if more colors (higher
number of different colors) actually make it
more colorful or if it is like 11 watching down
meters - up and till ~11 m, it gets scarier and
scarier, but above that, one can add a hundred
meters just as well and it doesn't get any
more scary!

Background colors are perhaps just what is
underpowered tho, at least I didn't use them
that much, so perhaps that is indicative too
heavy-handed to be useful...

Plus, who cares if just one user wants it as
long as he (she?? colors) is the one who
does it? It is always like that. Well,
sometimes you wish it weren't like that, but
put it this way, it is good that it *can* be
like that!
