Relying on colors only is somewhat risky so icons would add to accessibility.
However, 16px icons on small displays with high resolutions are also difficult
to spot. It may be a good idea to use styling for the text (bold etc.) and make
it customizable, just like colors? I think styled text would be much more
distinguishable. What you think?
BTW, I just noticed that different default colors are used for log (General >
Colors) and revision graph (Revision graph > Colors). Wouldn't that be better to
make them consistent?
