A limited settings editing capability in RbUtil could be useful though,
for things like "reset colors/backgrounds to something visible" and similar.

Yes, resetting the settings during boot does the trick too, but the user
wouldn't need to dig out the manual to find the magic key combination
(or even know it exists) and it wouldn't reset all settings.
