I'm in favor of *not* setting a background color by default. (Last time 
I checked, we did set a background color by default, which I think is 
wrong, but it's a long time ago that I checked).

I would even be in favor of not allowing the user to set any color. 
(Note that if we allow the user to set a foreground color for some text, 
we need to also set the background color at the same time.)

I don't care much about the UI, but "[ ] Set background color 
[colorpicker]" makes sense to me. For the UI, I refer to Richard, who is 
in charge of the UI. The ESC is *not* in charge of the UI, only of 
technical aspects.
