Well, I agree that original colors aren't the best ones for a light background either, but
not all bold variants are suitable for light background - yellow, white and cyan are
problematic at least on some terminals with light background (e.g. konsole; white isn't
used). So I'd really keep separate sets of colors.

Thanks for your review, I'll post fixed version with two sets of colors.

Kind regards,
