Now you mention this, I feel encouraged to mention a similar
problem. The Freeciv minimap is bad for the color-blinded,
even partial color-blinded, i.e red-green-blind (which is a 
common term though it's not clear defined what lack of sight
it describes AFAIK).

Some experiments with a friend of mine turned out, that the
special composition of colors in the minimap is the problem,
not the use of colors at all.

So, adjustable colors here would be nice.
