I also don't see any problem. But if anyone here has some difficulties to read
the grub screen (for any reasons), I guess several Debian users would get the
problem. We'd better find something that can be readable for everyone.
Anyway, the theme will be tweaked a bit for few reasons (like this one) so I
don't really mind to do some modifications. It depends on the time packagers
have to apply these modifications.

I'll see what color can be used. If no one is suitable, I may render a darker
background for grub.
