The new look is realy nicer, but with the old style
it was easier to differentiate if you have very similar
colors or very light colors.
e.g. I have one graph where a line is drawed with color #eeeeee.
With 1.4.2 you see absolute nothing in the legend ;-)

Would be nice to get (via option?) the old look back.
