For m68k? (most m68k-machines don't have true color, since they're
usually quite old)
For users that fail to setup X so that it's using more than just 256
colors? (shouldn't happen with Branden's excellent packages, but one never
For windowmanagers that only support icons with thos
limitations? (although I don't know of any such windowmanager)
Because using lots of true color-icons (with different colors) wastes
color space on 8 and 16 bit screens?
Because some people don't care about color, but prefer higher resolutions?
