Well, I guess the original change was to close a very
longstanding bug report. That was hamm when it was unstable, so
normal users should not have encountered that change.
I propose xbase allowing people to choose between black or white
background during postinst or maybe in some kind of xbaseconfig script.
I know the plan for X is to break up xbase into many smaller
pieces, so the configuration option could be available in the future xterm
