You'll be pleased to know that provisions have been made to allow for
color-blindedness within the design. They were discussed in detail a few
messages back.

Bottom line is, don't worry if you're color-blind. We've got it covered;
you'll be able to designate what colors you want to represent what states,
and in doing so, avoid using colors you are not able to differentiate (red
and green, for example)

Neat, huh? :)
