I think implementing builtin colors opens a can of worms even
if they are turned off by default. For example, one set of
colors might not be suitable for all(*), so you need to make them

In my opionion, a separate program would be better. Maybe it
could be called by a Lua hook when needed.

On the other hand, the "difficult" people could always use the default
black/white mode plus a separate program and it's your own time, so
feel free to use it as you wish. :)

(*) Like (partially) color blind people, people who use fancy
background colors, or transparent terminals, etc.
