Can you make the defaults:
- White fill in shapes rather than light blue

I was thinking of LibreOffice Green instead of Blue 8... What do you
think? This is easy to change.

This is actually a pretty important interoperability issue. I work with
KOffice, and we sometimes receive bug reports saying that "KOffice shows
the wrong color for X". When investigating it turns out that the color
for X is actually undefined and that what the user sees when he looks at
the document in OOo is the default color -- the light blue.

I think the ODF TC should specify the default values for all the properties
of all types of styles.  But until that happens, can we please come to
an agreement between at least KOffice and LibO?  Hopefully one that follows
the principle of least astonishment.

This would mean blank or white as the default background for shapes, not
blue or green or any other color.
