It does change the behaviour slightly, but situations where the
difference would be visible are unlikely to occur in practice.
Specifically, if previously you had:
value 10 11 12 13 14
colour 0 5 5 5 10
now it would elminate some values to give:
value 10 11 14
colour 0 5 10
effectively stretching the transition.
This can occur either if the source colour table has discontinuities
(which seems an odd choice for use with equalisation), or the the
histogram is extremely spikey i.e. specific category values constitute
a significant proportion of the data, with adjacent values having
Making it preserve the colour table exactly would take some more work.
It would need to consider three values at a time, eliminating the
middle value whenever its colour is identical to the first and last
