That's what is happening. And if I set the color in my .muttrc not to be
bright, it doesn't show up in bold in Konsole. So mutt must be demanding it to
be bold if I choose a bright color.

But let's not get sidetracked with mutt. It's not the only application that's
giving trouble. 

> .colorscheme Color Entry | Font Style Requested By App | Visual Result
> 1. Bold=false | Non-Bold | Non-Bold
> 2. Bold=false | Bold     | Bold
> 3. Bold=true  | Non-Bold | Bold
> 4. Bold=true  | Bold     | Bold

How about just having it such that if their is a bold entry, Konsole will
always respect it. If there isn't, then Konsole will do whatever the
application requests?
