I guess anything darker would be a step in the right direction.

OK, I guess these themes are not for me.

I aim for something like uniform contrast so that I can set the
contrast on my monitor to some value under which everything on my
screen is easy to read yet not too sharp. With a theme set that
includes a low-contrast selection and black text on almost white
background elsewhere I cannot get that.

Unfortunately many things are hardcoded to black on white so lower
contrast themes are generally not very useful.

I hoped this theme could get somewhat usable for me so that I can have
more than the single theme I have adapted but I guess this was
