Well, I suspect that that feature would be controversial (maybe it
doesn't count as a suckless feature) for the main distribution. So I
was thinking about making the changes so that colours are standard
variables rather than #defines as part of an options patch. That would
both be a start for me to see if I like st in general, and then make
it easier to have a patch manipulating them to my personal st.
