    I also would like the current (menuconfig) defautl color scheme to be used.

    We already have:
    Optional personality available
    . ------------------------------
    . If you prefer to have all of the kernel options listed in a single
    . menu, rather than the default multimenu hierarchy, run the menuconfig
    . with MENUCONFIG_MODE environment variable set to single_menu. Example:
    . make MENUCONFIG_MODE=single_menu menuconfig
    . <Enter> will then unroll the appropriate category, or enfold it if it
    . is already unrolled.
    . Note that this mode can eventually be a little more CPU expensive
    . (especially with a larger number of unrolled categories) than the
    . default mode.

    But I do not think it is much used.
