	Soo ... in general setting manual colors that don't come from the theme
is a disaster area for accessibility.

	There are whole schools-fulls-of users in the tropics that explode when
they see the color yellow :-) [ or something like that ].

	Seriously; any color we use for highlighting (or whatever) should come
from the defined colors used for the rest of the app, and thus from some
sort of system theme (ideally). That way it can be changed to be
high-contrast / low-contrast etc.

	This is in part why you tend not to see yellow entries left/right :-)
