The latest ardour cvs has a new default scheme, which is paving the way
for complete control of Ardour's GUI colors from the rc file.

The current effort is naming every single graphical element in Ardour,
so that they can all be manipulated from the ardour_ui.rc file.  For
example, if you would like to modify the current waveform color (black),
search for the "waveform" style in the rc file and make your changes.
