[REQ]Light/dark toggle for terminal emacs

I was using emacs -nw in a terminal the other day and noticed that only the 
tsdh-light theme was able to give me a light background/dark text out of all 
the themes in etc/themes. This was a freebsd terminal where the default term 
has limited colors, and tsdh-light was the only theme that didn't check for a 
minimum of 80 something colors. It wasn't great but it was much more readable, 
and faster than setting -fg or -bg on the command line.

I think it would be a good idea to have a menu option in terminal emacs at 
least to toggle light/dark for easy of editing. My vision is impaired and I 
work best with light terminals most of the time. Probably the Options menu 
before Multilingual Environment. Someone said (invert-face 'default) can do 
this but I don't expect a casual user on bsd or otherwise would know about 
this. Possibly a command line option like -light or -dark might also work.
