Identicon should be opaque

I think identicon should be opaque. Currently, in PyBitmessage, the background color of identicon is transparent. So the identicon in a selected address has blue background and looks slightly different than unselected one, which has white background. Identicon's main purpose is distinguish addresses. Same identicons should always look same.

Thank you for creating patch. It looks better. Still image becomes slightly darken when selected, but may be sufficient. I hope this patch will be accepted in mainline.

git apply "path/to/the.patch"

I doubt it. Nobody understands the meaning of that 'qidenticon_x', 'qidenticon_two_x', ... including me. So it's difficult to ensure that the patch doesn't breaks some important logic. Furthermore it seems you can achieve the same result just setting say "identiconlib = qidenticon_a" in bitmessagesettings section of keys.dat.

Thank you for comments. It is read that '_two' means two-foreground-color rendering. '_x' seems to mean 'transparent', at least. See: git log -p 86485a9b096bb src/bitmessageqt/__init__.py git log -p 0959c9c07c2534d src/bitmessageqt/__init__.py '_b' may be synonym for '_x'. Currently, identiconlib defaults to 'qidenticon_two_x'. Setting "identiconlib = qidenticon" without the patch seems to be sufficient to make identicon opaque (and two-foreground-color rendering).

I make a correction for last post. 'qidenticon_two' instead of 'qidenticon'. Setting "identiconlib = qidenticon_two" without the patch seems to be sufficient to make identicon opaque (and two-foreground-color rendering).

the '_two' means use 2 colors instead of 1 the '_x' or '_b' means use transparent background the patch indeeds breaks important logic as what used to be transparent will now be opaque (obviously the intent) but also what used to be opaque will now be transparent.
