I looked at the linked image and also downloaded the colortest script to see
for myself how st is different.

Maybe this is one of those things like hi-fidelity stereo equipment where
some people are acutely aware of differences the hoi polloi can't perceive,
but whatever differences *I* can see don't seem worth fussing about. I don't
see any differences in hue, which is what I expected after reading your
comments about changing the numbers. I do see a difference in brightness, as
advertised -- but I kinda prefer the brighter colors.
