I just committed essentially this patch to both branches of cvs.
Another part of the change replaces the fixed colors (medium blue
and gray) with colors picked from the style of the BalsaMessage,
so they change with the theme (medium blue really clashed with
Grand Canyon!). However, Balsa has to be restarted after
Message text is now shown seamlessly against the background in
all Fedora themes except Crux and Ocean Dream. In Crux, there's a
thin, pale gray, frame separating the white text base from the
white message background, and in Ocean Dream the text is set on a
very pale gray base but the message background is white--not
perfect, but not so bad looking.
There's probably a better way to adapt to theme changes (even
adapting on the fly, like every other widget!)--if anyone knows
the necessary magic, please let us know!
