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.
