        There really is no OS preference for application background that I'm
aware of on unix/gtk+ - quite possibly I'm just missing it but ... ;-)

 If there is a need to tweak it, then we should only change "little"

        How to change it is a difficult thing to choose of course.

    Or somesuch so the situation could be rescued by themes that do odd
things with contrast. It'd be a nice easy hack I guess if someone wants
to file the bug and/or add it to the easy-hack page and/or post a tested
patch to the dev list. :-)

Do you mean "Themes" like having a group of settings to be applied
together - like "LibreOffice Spring Style" (containing definitions for
icons style, UI colors, background graphics). That would be something
I'd support :-) Is this what you are thinking about as well?

        Nope - I mean allowing the existing gtk+ themes to specify what the
libreoffice app background color is, using a special tweak-able. We
could feasibly add a number of these and encourage theme authors &
distro creators to tweak them to something that suits their taste. That
of course involves some work - but its quite do-able work.
