When loading a vector, random colors are assigned; it seems appropriate avoiding both black and white, as white can be confused with background, and black is the default color for outline. Same for random colors in classifications

Hello, bug triage...

after digging into the code, I've found the default color symbol affectation (on core/symbology-ng/qgssymbolv2.cpp):

s->setColor( QColor::fromHsv( qrand() % 360, 64 + qrand() % 192, 128 + qrand() % 128 ) );

The saturation can't be inferior to 64 (avoid color to be too white) and the value can't be inferior to 128 (avoiding too dark colors).

I am closing this old one !
