Well, colour tables don't have an entry for NULL, but d.rast allows it
to be set with the "bg=" option; also, NULL can be transparent (e.g. 
"d.rast -o ...", in which case the colour will be that used for the
last call to d.erase. And even if it was always white, this might not
be obvious to the user, so it may be worthwhile including it in the

I think that d.legend/d.leg.thin should have an option to set the NULL
colour, and a flag to select whether to display an entry for it (then
the only issue is whether it is on or off by default).
