Meanfully change the theme via color schemes

I am personally very much not a fan of the way dropdowns and buttons highlighted. I don’t like the fact that it’s using these weird glowy outlines. This may be the design language but it’s not to my liking.

I think it would be a good idea to allow changing the highlight outline and fill of these widgets via color schemes so that the user could get a solid highlight on mouseover or click. I want these to just be solid blue for example and I’d like to be able to configure that style via color schemes.

Current “outline”

This will probably be possible eventually in Plasma 6. We’re in the middle of de-framing our selection highlights right now, and it will probably be possible to redo things such that people who want them back can re-add them via their color schemes’ “Hover Decoration” color. It was made for this.
