I agree that the contrast is bad, but there's only so much you can do
with the limited color set available in a terminal.  More syntax
elements were introduced in vim7 so it's harder to avoid less-than-ideal
highlighting scenarios.

I'm tagging this as wontfix since there's not much to do about it even
though I agree that it can be problematic.
