Personally I don't like the highlighting of the free space indicator. I
find it rather distracting. It suffices that the top of the panel is
highlighted, no need to highlight that info for the active panel. IMO
the conditional attrset (REVERSE_COLOR) etc should be removed.

I noticed your reply related to the free space widget highlighting also
on bugzilla. I my opinion it makes the look-and-feel of mc more
consistent when the free space widget is highlighted. The reasons are:

1) Everything what is written directly to the panel frame is highlighted
  (current working directory, directory history widget).

I second that.

2) You are sure that you are looking at the correct free space in the
  panel you are working in. When it wouldn't be highlighted, you need
  to look up at the panel title to be sure whether it's active since
  the the highlighted widgets are on top of the panel. This may save
  you one eye movement ;)

How about moving the free space indicator to same line on which the panel
title is displayed ? How is it implemented in other file managers ?
