I write an application that uses a 4 or 5 different colors to indicate
various important conditions. There are so many varieties of color
blindness that I decided to make the colors user-settable. That way each
user can set up a palette that he or she can easily differentiate (even
if it's only different shades of gray).
I use a few other colors as "eye candy" and chose to not make those
user-settable. No complaints so far (except mild griping from a few
folks who like to tweak everything).
