case insensitive for custom color of event types.


    public ConsoleColor GetConsoleColor(TraceEventType eventType)
        var key = eventType.ToString() + "Color";
        if (Attributes.ContainsKey(key))
            var setting = Attributes[key];
            if (Enum.IsDefined(typeof (ConsoleColor), setting))
                return (ConsoleColor) Enum.Parse(typeof (ConsoleColor), setting);

Easy fix; it might make for lazy configs if allow case, but should be able to simply use Enum.Parse(typeof(ConsoleColor), setting, true); which is the ignoreCase version of the method.

But IsDefined() is case-sensitive.

It may be better to use Enum.TryParse() which is however available only in .NET 4.

Though technically I could remove isDefined and catch exception that EnumParse may throw, however, this may break the original design intent that did not want to trigger any exception throwing.

Let's improve this when moving away from .net 2.
