Looking at konsole's preferences window, it seems to have sort of a backwards
idea of bright/bold. There's a dropdown box that has the 8 colors, and also
a set of 8 "intensive" colors. For each of those 16 you can set the actual
color it uses, and also set if that specific color should be displayed in
a bold font.
