Sigil with Dark OS Themes

I recently had to build Sigil 0.5.3 from source, because of an OS issue. I'm now running Ubuntu Minimal 12.04 + XFCE (not Xubuntu).

Making it from source has been cool, lots of new features that weren't available in the previous version that I'd been sticking with for stability and workflow reasons.

But for those of us that can't stand the light blasting us in the retinas...

Is there a way to turn off line highlighting in code view? I get white-on-white, which is illegible, of course. Also, all the tooltips are using white text (proper) on a white background (not so much.)

There aren't many dark themes out of the box in 12.04, maybe 2 that seem reasonable, so it's tough to find one with different colored text.

On a related note, the shortcut editor is using black text in the third column, while the others are using the system color.

And Book View is using black text, not the system color -- there is not a single color call in the CSS, either.

If anyone has a workaround or a config that doesn't involve changing my CSS or my theme, I'd appreciate it. I include configuration for how to recompile Sigil as a possibility.

Aloha,
