#31 highlight chat messages by using a background color

Frank Thilo

Recently, different colouring for messages in the
console has been introduced. Chat messages are now
somewhat harder to recognize at a glance. This patch
highlights these kinds of messages by using a bluish
background colour instead of black. The foreground is
white for server messages (/lagstats etc.), cyan for
publci and team messages and yellow for private messages.

I am not sure I really like this patch myself :-). The
client can now be configured to use the old coluring
scheme anyway. But if you like, try it anyway, you
might like it.

    I actually prefer it with the cyan text coloring.
    The modified background color looks weird
    (a wee bit subjective). If you do plan on
    using it, darker colors might be a little better.

    The original code just had a cyan underline
    for the user's name, and the rest of the code
    in the user's color (but I find your cyan line
    coloring easier to find).
