Yes, it looks like it would be a bit complex.  I looked at r.colors,  
and it would take a bit or rewriting to handle the way I wrote the  
find_etc function, or I may need to consider a new variation on the  
function to handle the way r.colors works.

Symlinks of the color files in the application package would be  
marginally safer than the files themselves - you wouldn't lose the  
files, but you may still have to recreate the symlinks.

Did you try using the full path to the color files?
