#680 assigned enhancement

Make readonly files visually distinct via different background

In all kinds of editors, I get caught by trying to do things to a readonly file I'm not allowed to touch.

To help make this readonly limitation immediately and intuitively obvious, use a different background colour for the editor window when the file is readonly.

For the white-background styles, I recommend a light grey.
