I have started to address this (you can change the background and text 
colours by adjusting the [theme] variables in the plugins .ini file (see 
manageR help). Hopefully I'll add some gui options to the manageR 
dialog... the only issue is that according to the QGIS gui guidelines, 
only the main application is supposed to have a menu bar, so I will 
likely have to find alternative ways of doing this...

Hopefully that's what you were hoping to hear. Please let me know if you 
have any further suggestions, or would like to contribute at all.
