I agree, and I have normal color vision. At the moment I use these

normalBorderColor  = "#333333"   -- dark grey
focusedBorderColor = "#aecf96"   -- light green

I find these colors very appealing and easy to distinguish against black
terminals. With GUI apps and their grey-colored widgets the colors do
not work, but I usually use GUI apps only in fullscreen mode so it's not
such a problem. I picked the latter color from some dzen screenshot by
Rob, by the way.
