There's a screen shot of my Vim color scheme attached to To my eyes, "if" and
"else" are blue on the left and light purple, lavender perhaps, on the
right. Similarly "NULL", "EINTR" are neon green on the left and
something akin to bright, beer-yellow on the right. The difference is
glaringly apparent to me, and I that the hue is actually different can
be shown almost objectively (I understand color theory in far more
complex than that) with a color dropper set to HSV mode.

If it were _just_ brighter, I probably wouldn't care, but to me, the
difference in color is like night and day. I understand that I'm an
obvious minority in caring about the difference which is why I didn't
request the patch I submitted get merged into master; I simply wanted to
make it available for anyone else that might be agonized by the color
schemes they've been using for years across three different terminal
emulators with no difference between them suddenly changing ;).
