Dark mode for Google Drive.

Note: It whitens the default-color text on 'Docs' documents, and it inverts all the colors on 'Sheets' documents. If you notice colors look weird in Sheets, that'll be why.

Sheets used to (fingers crossed) have a weird bug where if you use this style and write in a new cell, it'll weirdly color the cell (for both you and people who aren't using the style) – if you reset the color of the cell after writing in a new one, it should fix it, or if you only edit cells. It was in the parent style, and it should hopefully be fixed, but let me know if it recurs or if there are other glitches with editing cells on Sheets.

It also used to whiten all text on Docs, but has now been made to (hopefully) only whiten default-color ('#000000') text, list bullet points, and slightly change the default color of links for visibility. Unfortunately it is far more difficult to check if a snippet of text has a background color, so I can't selectively disable this when there is a background enabled. This is a new and potentially controversial change, so please provide me with feedback on it.
