Thanks for the patch. I've started a topic branch called default-colors.
Currently using this patch makes Sup look crazy for me, so I haven't
merged it into next.

I think the problem is the Sup is setting the background color to be
black. Parts of the screen have the "ncurses default" and parts of it
have black. I do think it's a step in the right direction though.

This is a different problem, having to do with Sup's notion of a default
color. From what I recall it was a YAML issue or something.
