Regarding the issue of black pieces losing their detail, I've sometimes seen (in contexts other than chess) black images with white outlines, so I wonder if it would be possible to reverse the color of the outlines, or even have something like an outlineColor variable? (Or perhaps blackOutline and whiteOutline.) It's something that probably would only work on SVG sets, but it's a thought.

I agree with Fergus that this is ugly, and should not be supported. The XBoard black pieces are designed with white details inside tof them, however. If you would want to recolor those, it is the black part that should be recolored, not the white. Usually any color that can be distinguished from black gives much better looking pieces if you ise the outline pieces.
