Hm, I don't know what colour would be best for consistency here. I'm
not sure if the standard selection colour would really be fitting.
Unless we find something, I wouldn't consider the hard-coded blue
colour a problem (unless you are working on a blue background – maybe
adding a white outline in this case would be a solution, I don't know
if that's worth bothering with now).

However, I agree, the slide selection in the Impress sidebar should be
painted in the standard selection colour of the system. Both the
border of the selection and the highlight colour should be derived
from that... and that's a completely different bug.
