Hm. I'm almost constantly amazed by all the things we people consider
`intuitive' these days ;-)

But anyway... there is no way around this if we want to be able to
define context-specific colors. Which we want.

Probably mostly simplicity in the C-code.  These two aren't special in
any way.  The code just looks them up.

Hm, they are mentioned in the order in which they are looked up[1].


[1] So `COLORS' comes first.  And that from me.  I would have guessed
    it were the other way round.  How counterintuitive.
