I have reverted the patch that sneaked into CVS one day even so I totally 
agree that the behaviour should be changed. But all scripts and probably 
even some plug-ins make heavy use of it. Look into the Script-Fu scripts,
they are full of 

   (gimp-palette-set-background (`r g b))
   (gimp-edit-fill drawable)

We would have to change them all or we could introduce a weird hack that
only changes the behaviour in the GUI, but wouldn't that be even more

Salut, Sven
