Yeah, I think it is a little easier on the eyes while maintaining the
intended color scheme.

On my xterm, at least, this is actually the difference between light
blue" and dark blue, not bold and not-bold. I think it is OK, though to
be honest, having seen the "skip all" messages in cyan (e.g., running
t9800), I think just printing skip messages in cyan looks best. But it
is not that big a deal to me, and we are well into bikeshed territory, I
think, so that will be my last word on the subject.
