IMHO we should not remove any "unnecessary" information until the
user explicitely chooses it. It is a great feature if the unerase
works on an PNG...

It is fairly trivial to write a plugin to remove the unnecessary
color-information. Either steal code from the semiflatten plugin
or extend the semiflatten plugin to export a second PDB-function
to remove the UCI. If nobody else works on this currently I can do
this this weekend or so.
