Yes, I have a dark scheme for Kate that I'd like to add to the distribution.

Kate can't currently follow the settings, because of the amount of colors 

I strongly support the idea of making a broader color scheme. Apart from kate, 
other apps I use daily that needs many colors: kmail, ksirc (or any irc 
client), kopete.

In reply to scott: kate uses *at least* 10 different colors of text/background 
to cover the default styles. It's kinda hard to calculate that many in a 
foreseeable way i think.
