True. As far as I can see, a big problem is color matching between the
standard drawing programs (d.graph, d.labels) and rastar maps. What Grass
really needs is a way to ADD to the standard color table (a d.colors
extension, maybe?). I've found the color table in the source code, but
haven't gotten the go ahead to recompile here. 

We'll see how things go in the coming weeks. 

Thanks, Jason.
