I've always wondered why Konsole doesn't include a full colour picker
for foreground, background, bold, inverse, etc., as is common with all
other terminal emulators I've ever used, and instead restricts us to a
fixed selection of themes.  Does anyone know what the design decision
debate was here ?

"sophisticated" in KDE 3.x]
