The last time I've had a system where private colourmap support
was useful was back in 1991 or so.  Many people nowadays probably
don't even know what it is:  On systems with a limited number of
colours (anybody remembers graphics cards that could only display
256 colours in parallel) every window could have its own set of
colours to use, and when it got the focus, that map would be
installed, rendering all other windows in funny colours.

I've honestly no ideas if there are still applications around that
do that (Netscape was one).  Is there a reason to keep it?
