Hi all!

I've already started to work with JMeter 4 and it's definitely a great release! But I am having troubles with Darcula LAF, which I appreciate in most cases. And I prefer a dark LAF to a light one.

Here are my issues listed as follows:

- It is not that easy to differentiate disabled or enabled items in the testplan (left treeview pane). Both fonts are grey and only slightly different. I'd like to see more white in the font of active items to have a better contrast. After all we have to work with this tool!
- A request error is marked with red text in the results tree, which leads to bad visibility (and I think not only for color blind people). The greyish backgorund has some tendency to green, or is it only me, seeing that?
- Sometimes there's blue colored text, eg. Response Code in the Sampler result, or the help link of some plugins, which is also a bad choice.
- the icon pane is very wide compared with the older LAF, the spaces between the icons are to big. Why is this so?

IMO the current default LAF needs some tweaks, but then it's quite ok.

Thanks for your precise feedback.
We'll try to implement that, but if you feel like providing a PR , we'll be very happy.
