Obviously, I agree.  Please wait for a day or two for the other
developers, including Richard Stallman, to respond.

I suspect that 88 colors should be enough to support all the default
faces nicely.  So (assuming this idea gets approved) perhaps using 88
_instead_ of 256 would be good enough.

That would leave us with 16-color terminals, which include the
16-color xterm, rxvt, and the MS-Windows and MS-DOS terminals; and
with 8-color terminals.

What to do with the number of colors between 88 and 16, I don't know.
Perhaps for now just let that behave like 16-color terminals, since we
don't have such devices (AFAIK).
