Currently only a couple of settings, such as weechat.look.buffer_time_format, support ${color} support changing colours of text within a display item.
Making this support global could simplify theming and get rid of a lot of themeing related setting.
For instance, instead of having weechat.color.status_* and similar settings to colour various bar items, you can just have the weechat.bar.*.items settings in which you can use colours in any place you want. (Especially since weechat.color.status_name is badly named, since it influences a bar item which can be placed in non-status bars too).

I realise this could 'ruin' everyone's theme though, but perhaps the weechat upgrade script can take this into account by adding the appropriate ${color} texts at the places where the various settings normally would've applied, before removing the settings from the config(s).
