I think it is fantastic that colors are being corrected for Ubuntu.
Unfortunately, changes made to Ubuntu seem to affect Kubuntu and
Xubuntu also. How do we get the colors to our own pallette? 

I would much prefer the good old DOS blue to Aubergine or Orange for
Xubuntu. I find it much closer to the colors used by Xubuntu and Xfce.
