You can write a theme that checks for global color names and styles first before setting defaults. Then you can pass that information to your theme via the table. (This is what happens with `font` and `size` in Textadept's default themes. I'll consider looking into a more generic way of doing this, but it's not a high priority since there's already ways of doing these kinds of overrides.

Alright, the `lexer` not yet being loaded was what i was missing!
