I am not a huge fan of adjusting our defaults to other people's
default, since they can match ours to "have the same default", if
they wanted to.  Also we are risking complaints from those who would
say "We've been happily using the default coloring, and you suddenly
changed it to something ugly. We want our color back and we do not
care that now you match what GNU does".

But it seems that I won't have to be the one who need to field such
complaints, and instead we have at least two well-known people in
the list who volunteered for the role, so let's take it as-is.
