[Actually, the old version maps 1 -> black and max -> white.]
That patch will work on its own, but it amounts to an incompatible
change to the behaviour of r.colors.
Even if the existing behaviour is undesirable, suddenly changing it in
a minor revision may be more undesirable. There are cases where the
existing behaviour is "adequate" (i.e. where min/max is small), and
the incompatibility would be a nuisance (e.g. having to re-do existing
graphics to maintain consistency).
