 True but that was choice one that I find hateful. It really is ugly. 

 I was really suggesting a shaded semi-transparent thing that would 
always make sure the font color shows. If you have a look at Eterm, 
you can see with various tests that brightness is really the way to 

 A default 75% brightness would be great for most users. Advanced 
users could set it to lower values or higher or simply the ugly number 
1 choice.
