At present, Leo has the following definitions in leoGlobals​:

def error(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('red'), *args, **keys)

def note(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('black'), *args, **keys)

def warning(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('blue'), *args, **keys)

They can be changed to:

def error(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('error'), *args, **keys)

def note(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('note'), *args, **keys)

def warning(*args, **keys):
   g.es_print(color=g.actualColor('warning'), *args, **keys)

And this is probably *all *that needs to happen.

So please calm down and read the following carefully.

g.log is a completely separate function.​ It should not be changed.

There is no such code in Leo's core. There is color="red" or color="blue".

In Leo's core all calls to g.es are exactly as they were before. Now, 
however, you could write color="warning" or color="error".

You have the situation completely backwards. color="blue" is the *legacy*. 
You are no longer "supposed to" use it. You can use anything you like.

warnings, and (b) that this will print a message in the log in a theme 
defined color that may not be any kind of blue.

This was what you were "supposed to know" previously. Nothing in Leo's core 
has changed.​ 

> So we're going backwards.

No. You have it backwards.​ 


Changing calls to g.es in Leo's core is conceivable, but not necessary.

Changing the definitions of g.error, g.note and g.warning as described 
above would probably suffice, provided that themes define @color 
log_error/node/warning_color settings.

The new scheme increases our choices while allowing all legacy code to work 
as before.
