Options for multicolored chat room usernames

Hello. I'm a big fan of pidgin and have gotten many of my friends to use a customised version. So thank you for pidgin, and thanks taking the time to read this.

My concern is nick_colors in gtkconv.c - Would it be possible (in any ad-hoc manner) to set them all to grey? Or for a normal user to change the default colors in gtknickcolors.h?

I realise that I could edit the source (the generating function) to solve this problem, I am however using a portable version and my c is not good enough to make a full-on plugin.

I'd rather the nicks would all be grey. Is it possible to simply edit that using the gtkrc file?

A similar question was asked 8 years ago, but I am bringing it up to ask again given how much pidgin has evolved since then, and how minimalism and customisability are so popular.

Perhaps the Pidgin GTK+ THeme Control Plugin could have an option that can globally set nick_color to a constant?
