How are selection colors generated?

The new PCB layout color themes in V6 are really useful - and a step toward very useful user customization. I’ve googled around a bit looking for the way the selection color is generated when an object is selected, without success. The default theme is all based on a dark background and I like light backgrounds. I can edit the colors but now what happens when they are selected - which is mostly a jumps towards more pale.

So - how is the selection color generated?

And while I’m at it - why not let the user edit the selection color while they are editing the layer color? This would be a very useful customization and very quickly lead to a wealth of useful kicad color themes that could be part of the distribution I bet.
