Tom Tromey and I spoke on IRC about this. I forgot one type because we
dont show it yet: fully merged classes.

So we need "merged" for fully merged classes and "mergeexpected" for 7.

We really have no preferences for the colors. My proposal would be would
be to make merged and specific classes (1-4) green, merged classes
(6 + 7) orange or yellow and unmerged classes (5) red. It would probably
be nice to have unique color for every type to distinguish easier. I
dont know if thats possible with green for 5 types.
