Color of skipped files in merge is a usability problem

When we do a merge and the branch added a file that is already present
in my work copy, the merge is skipped. The action is correct, but the
color of the action/path list in the merge dialog is bugging me.

I'm responsible to review and merge the changes from our development
branch to our production branch. Here is the work flow that gets me in
trouble:

1) Merge a bunch of revisions to my work copy.
2) Spot a problem and tell someone to fix it.
3) Revert the work copy. Now the added files are still there but out
of version control.
4) Transfer other revisions from the development to the production
branch.
5) The developer fix the problem and I merge again the old revisions
and the new one to my work copy.

Now I have a problem. Since there's already a file in my work copy,
when I try to merge, the add file action is skipped. The skipped
message is in the middle of dozens of other messages and I don't see
it.

I merge the revised copy and a file is missing. Our production branch
is broken.

I'd like to be able to set as bright red the color of the "Skipped"
action. Like the "Skipped missing target". It is always an error for
me.

kind regards,
Paulo Eduardo Neves
