Argh. Not another color for the bikeshed. We were so close to a nice

Let's end this and just go with Simon's Solo# as it had already achieved a
reasonably wide consensus on the thread and we can put this to bed.

Simon: I'd replied a couple of weeks ago on the trac ticket to try to end
this, but apparently didn't visibly weigh in in a fashion that obviously
carried the full force of the committee.
