Every single time someone introduces a color-coded element of the GUI,
someone complains that it could be an accesibility issue.

I think it's time for the a11y people to solve this problem for good.

In GTK+ 2.10 we got the wonderfully obscure and underused
gtk_style_lookup_color() and color expressions in gtkrc files (e.g. so
you can do gtk_style_lookup_color (style, "spellcheck_squiggle")), but
so far these have been useless for color-coding arbitrary elements of
the GUI.  Maybe one could build a little API on top of these
(interpolate across several well-known symbolic color names?) to get
palettes suitable for color-coding.
