the reason we would not change at gedit level is that the classic theme from gedit which is the shipped by default follows the theme (Adwaita) colors, making it more approapiate since it follows better the colors from the desktop while solarized or any of the others it doesn't.

I recently blogged on the Fedora Magazine about the awesome addition of the Solarized colour schemes in GEdit and GNOME-terminal in workstation [1].  And a commenter on that post asked the question: why not make it default?

Since terminal ships with the dark GTK theme turned on, we could set the default color scheme there to Solarized Dark, and for gedit (that uses the light GTK theme by default), enable Solarized Light by default.
