Well, my solution is to keep the inverse video attribute and define the
reversed colors. The problem of reversed color on X is solved by:

(set-face-foreground 'mode-line
           (if window-system "white"    "magenta"))
(set-face-background 'mode-line
           (if window-system "magenta"  "white"))

It may need a tweaking for MS-DOG, Eli what say you ?


BTW. Why was the mode line face name changed from "modeline" in Emacs
     19, 20 to "mode-line" ?
