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,
Unless Adwaita was built around the colors of the classic theme in
gtksourceview, this is not the case. The "classic.xml" colour theme
predates GTK3 -- the colour pallette has been the same since before
gtksourceview 2.91 was released , .
The solarized palette is a lot softer, and complements the adwaita
theme much better than the default classic theme. Here are some
screenshots comparing the two styles , .
making it more approapiate since it follows better
the colors from the desktop while solarized or any of the others
