That's not what I meant.
Now you can define all those 16 colors in *colorname[], then you decide which
one of _those_ is background, which is foreground and which is cursor.

It would be nice if one could choose even different colors for those three.
Sometimes there is a 'black' colored text you'd like to see in your terminal
with black background.

E.g. I use #191919 for background and #222222 for 'black', and #cccccc for
foreground and #dedede for 'white' in xterm.
