This is not an actual pull-request but rather an RFC (request for comments) from
the KTextEditor, Kate and KDevelop developers, because I failed to solicit any
feedback on the kdevelop-devel@ and kwrite-devel@ mailing lists.
So, I'm trying to make an exact port of Solarized to Kate/KDevelop and it looks
like Solarized is not compatible with Kate's search result highlighting behavior:
it requires search/replace highlight regions to use selection foreground and not
the normal one. You can find the details in the linked archive post.
The interesting detail is that it seems like kdevplatform's context browser plugin
hints at behavior sought by me (but implements it incorrectly, thus incidentally
remaining consistent with all other highlighting-related features in KTE/Kate).
However, just making that change will make Kate/KDevelop incompatible with all
existing color schemes. Hence, how do I proceed?
