FWIW, this is one of those "extra" features in the NS port that
survived the great purge.  If you have access to a Mac you can
pull up a color picker in Emacs.app with Cmd-C.  Drag a color to
a face to set it just on that frame, option-drag to set
background.  It uses set-face-foreground/background, settings
which used to be persisted using NS defaults, but no longer.
Hooking it up to customize instead might be a good idea,
particularly if other platforms add a widget and it can be done
in a standard way.
