I was going to say that basic elements of the user interface should
follow the users configuration in their chosen theme or whatever is
appropriate for their OS. We shouldn't start providing ways to
override what the system is setup to do as doing so for standard
elements essentially makes the themes mechanism redundant, and we'll
potentially end up having to add colour selection for countless
different things.

That said, I just checked both Visual Studio and XCode, and both of
those allow you to override the background colour as well as choose
custom foreground highlighting colours, so I guess my argument is
pretty weak :-(

Therefore, objection retracted.
