Sure. AFAIR fan-sliders use that approach.

I wonder if you can query for the color used for progress-bars.

Either ignore unfortunate themes, or try to evaluate the provided
colors, to use some fall-back if there isn't sufficient contrast.

An option for user-defined colors would have the problem that users have
to know about that and then have to bother defining it, if colors are
unpleasant, otherwise.
