the story of the counted cross stitch program is long and involves a few
lost websites and hard disks.

one thing, the gimp palettes are just lists of numbers in a text file,
not an image.  so you can easily make up your own palette.

i had a pallete like this in which Jeff Trefftz improved upon.  the gimp
can use and displace palettes with any number of entries.  the indexing
dialog can only use palettes with 256 colors or less.  it is not gimp,
it is the laws of indexing.  i dont even think it is a copyright
problem, i think this is a math problem.

i just found a cross stitch script-fu online, but it was through a
moderated mail lists archives.  i have to look at it to see if i can
share it or not.

making your own script to do this is a great thing to learn to script
gimp with.  the first time i got gimp to use the pixelize filter from a
script was a neat feeling.  the problem with this script is that you
have to figure out how to choose the best color from the dmc palette.
if you ask for help, they will show you physics papers about color
spaces -- i dont suggest this.

i hope i answered your question,
