The problem can be very important for people who get headaiches
when looking too much to a white screen. I would not know how to
do this with the OS. If you know that, then something might be
implemented or documented to exploit that.

Any modern OS provides a way to reverse the screen colors. There are also tools to do this. The amount of time needed to implement this in the QT port seems not worth it due to differences across platforms (i.e. QApplication::setPalette() won't do it, nor will QStyle::standardPalette())

I'd rather close this item with a "Won't fix"...

This option was implemented manually in the X11, using a nice modification of rgb_color.

I will investigate if this hortcoming can be addressed using the accessibility option available on Qt rather than with a flag which is not accessible on Mac or Windows.

The --reverse option for reversed video is not implemented
under Qt. It would be nice if the reverse video flag could be
changed during execution. Reverse video is important for some
people who cannot look at screens which are too bright.
