My last input on this (maybe this is mostly for the XEmacs folks and
Alexander Schmolck - author of ipython.el - but I don't have an email for
him handy). I looked at the color-option-setting code in ipython.el and
((eq frame-background-mode 'dark)
((eq frame-background-mode 'light)
(t ; default (backg-mode isn't always set by XEmacs)
Then I ran "xemacs -rv" and evaluated frame-background-mode. It was still
'light. I don't know what the right variable to test is, but on XEmacs it
doesn't appear that the -rv command line flag causes frame-background-mode
to be set differently (this is in 21.5b28).
