 Replying to [comment:1 mlennert]:
 > I always tell my students to never use the default colors of any

 Agreed - but most users will just take the default (sigh).

 > If we do change, I think that my favorite candidate for default would
 then be grey. This avoids color blindness issues, works for most
 applications and at the same time, in our modern color-oriented computing
 world, does provoke users to chose another one.

 This might be counter-productive and scare away users ("... oh, it cannot
 even show a color map!").
