My point was, it's only "the simple way" when you've already got both
colors calculated because the function draws both. But if drawing
backgrounds is moved into a separate function, as I was planning to do,
that function would be simpler if it didn't have to think about the
effects that bold/italic/underline have on the foreground color. My
question was whether this behavior is like this because other terminals
do the same thing, or _only_ because it's simpler.
