Option to indicate user level?
i am personally terrified by this suggestion.
as will undoubtedly come to light in theses yet to be written, works because of the subtleness of the way it deals with heirarchy. to classify everyone so explicitly into ubermenschen & untermenschen - is this really what is wanted? and speaking of ubermenschen, isn't this link between class and colour rather, well, 1940's-esque?
certainly the untermenschen, the most notable, most representative and humblest of whom (me) hates to be associated with ochre,
or some such poxy colour,
will not appreciate the scheme.
personalizable colour gradients will not alter this argument in the slightest.
