[HTTPS-Everywhere] Ruleset colours, what do they mean

The colours are:

dark green:  ruleset was active in loading the resources in the current page

light green: ruleset was ready to prevent HTTP loads in the current page, but
             everything that the ruleset would have covered was loaded over
             HTTPS anyway (possibly because of a rewrite that HTTPS Everywhere
             performed before the current DOM was instantiated, as is the case
             with the http://www.google.com -> https://encrypted.google.com
             rewrite for example)

             (in the code, light green is called a "moot rule")

dark brown:  broken rule -- the ruleset is active but the server is
             redirecting at least some URLs back from HTTPS to HTTP

grey:        the ruleset is disabled
