Ok, here's where everything comes from when using the ProfessionalRenderer:

DropDown Background -> SystemColors.Window

ToolStripLabel Background -> None (does not draw over dropdown's)
ToolStripLabel Text -> the ToolStripLabel's ForeColor

Unselected MenuItem Background -> None (does not draw over dropdown's)
Selected MenuItem Background -> Hardcoded Color (182, 189, 210)

Unselected MenuItem Text ->
  If the MenuItem's ForeColor = SystemColors.ControlText (meaning the user has
not changed it from the default), it uses SystemColors.MenuText.  If the user
has changed the ForeColor, it uses that.

Selected MenuItem Text -> same logic as unselected, uses
SystemColors.HighlightText if user has not changed the default.

Note that ToolStripLabels use different painting logic than normal

>From this, we have to figure out a combination that works for both the default
and systems where the window background is set to dark.  I am open to
suggestions, none of this is documented so it was just my best guess when I
wrote it.
