Oh well, my professional art critic senses would like to discuss this a
bit more.

The lighter the terminal background gets, the less it's recognized
as a terminal background.  So, instead of making the tty background
lighter, are there other choices to make the Cygwin C better stand out?

- What if the green glow around the black C glows a bit more?

- What if the green glow is replaced with a pretty light grey glow, just
  to help distinguishing the C from the background?

- Only in 48x48, what if the C is made one pixel bigger in each direction,
  perhaps combined with a lighter glow, green or grey?

It would probably be easier if I could handle gimp better, but I'm still
trying to untangle my fingers from the mouse cord...
