Oh wow...I literally have no memory of opening this bug.  That said, I do agree
with the person who opened it, now that I've read it.  :)

Hmm; well, primarily I would say that decision may be better left to a UI/UX
expert with a background in color psychology, if you're not just going to pick
one at random from a color wheel.  But since you're asking me, I'll do my best.

In the newest version of Konsole that I'm using is 15.12.3 (as packaged by
Kubuntu 16.04).  In that version, the "activity in an inactive tab" highlight
is a subtle (too subtle, IMO, but that's a personal preference...visually it
looks pleasing but the subtlety sabotages its primary function of attracting
attention) blue tint, maybe this should be a subtle magenta tint?  So it's
kinda the same color, to suggest that the information being conveyed is
similar, but distinct enough that you can tell it doesn't mean _exactly_ the
same thing?

To me personally, the exact color chosen isn't as important as making the app
able to differentiate them in the first place; if I don't like the default, I
should be able to change it with a custom stylesheet as described in the
Konsole documentation:
