I'm not asking you to apply the patch to tip, I'm simply posting the
patch for other people that may also like their existing color scheme to
remain unchanged. That said, I don't really think the current method of
"increase the color number" actually guarantees the replacement color
will actually be brighter outside the grayscale range, and on my
monitor, the change in color by brightening them is too drastic for me
to consider many of the replacements the same color as the unadulterated
values; in the screenshot I posted, what was once green became yellow,
and what was once blue purple. Although colors are a very subjective
thing, perhaps a more sophisticated method could be used to brighten
colors that makes this less of an issue.
