I'm using the appended color scheme (mostly the original one, but links use
bright red/blue instead of the standard dark ones) and I like it much more
than the old one with the bright background. My console here is 100x40
chars with 56 Hz vertical refresh, so a bright background would produce too
much flicker and is definitely a no-no.

the end of the file):
BTW, yes, I agree that the defaults should be changed. Dark red/blue on
black is completely unreadable.
