If the software is properly designed, it'll be a piece of cake. The
colors will all be in a single config file or config application.

Still, based on what we know already, I'll guess it's instead what a
boss from long ago called "a bag of cake". The colors will be hard coded
in the software in several different places, sometimes in hex, sometimes
in decimal, occasionally in octal, and occasionally parameterized in
non-standard ways, through parameters hidden in misleading .h files.
