I know that some people absolutely hate all colour, but in this context,
I don't think there's much danger that they're thinking that hitting

Well, Customize and *Help* buffers are eventually going to use the same
insertion buttons, but that's going to take a while.  And one of the
choices for both is going to be these characters, most likely, so it'll
be consistent anyway.

Magit already isn't consistent with anything, so it's not relevant for
the discussion.
