Only colors in the Tango palette should be considered.

You look worried about people thinking that MD is a cheap copy of Visual
Studio. So what? Will this make MD a worse IDE? Nope. Will this reduce
the number of potential MD users? Nope (in fact, it could make MD more
easily discoverable). So, I just don't care. Salvatore followed its own
design process to create the logo, that's enough for me.
