The patch reverts the one from https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/1186 so it
doesnt really look good.
As Aaron said in https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16996#comment53730 for
a slightly different patch: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16996?getfile=4307
"The current choices are: unreadable text on white backgrounds, or an
unattractive black block. I'll go with the unattractive and READABLE
choice here." https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16996#comment53730 which applies
to this patch as well.
