The easiest kludge I can think of for this is to write a quick program to
XOR all of the values in the font data files ("6x10.h" or some such)
with 255.  Your font will be permanently inverted, but you won't have to
mess with the spaghetti in console.c.

You probably weren't looking for such a drastic solution, were you?
I'm afraid we don't have a "reverse video" option... yet.

 I think "make love, not war" is probably too extreme.  I think the sentiment
	might be better phrased, "make grudging tolerance, not war."
