Begin work on an accessible color scheme which uses the system-wide colors provided by KColorScheme.  Changed the default color scheme to 'Linux' because (a) it was the most popular amongst users in the survey and (b) having used it for a couple of months in KDE 4 it is much more comfortable to use for long periods of use than the glare of a white background.  Updated TODOs with a few bugs that need fixing.

// Work In Progress - A color scheme for use on KDE setups for users
// with visual disabilities which means that they may have trouble
// reading text with the supplied color schemes.
// This color scheme uses only the 'safe' colors defined by the
// KColorScheme class.
// A complication this introduces is that each color provided by
// KColorScheme is defined as a 'background' or 'foreground' color.
// Only foreground colors are allowed to be used to render text and
// only background colors are allowed to be used for backgrounds.
// The ColorEntry and TerminalDisplay classes do not currently
// support this restriction.
// Requirements:
// - A color scheme which uses only colors from the KColorScheme class
// - Ability to restrict which colors the TerminalDisplay widget
// uses as foreground and background color
// - Make use of KGlobalSettings::allowDefaultBackgroundImages() as
// a hint to determine whether this accessible color scheme should
// be used by default.
