might be a good idea to split out the colors even further with:

MODE{BG,FG}COLOR (for the modelabel)
TITLE{BG,FG}COLOR (for the selected client's title label)

It adds only two more tuples, and it makes sure that the user can
color semantically different things in ways that appears best to him
(the fact that the modelabel uses the same colors as the (unrelated)
statuslabel has been bothering me a bit ever since it exists to be
