I tried a different background colour for just the side panels. It
looked clunky and awful.

I also tried making the item text bold, but that left everything badly
cluttered and ugly.

I've now increased the contrast... To my eyes for this monitor at least,
the sidebar text now appears to leap out of the screen at you. Hope not
too dazzling!

Next attempt could be to use different fonts but then we may aswel move
to using a different theme altogether...

So good enough? Or too unreadable?
