bug#5305: [patch] add defined-colors-with-face-attributes to faces.el

in an application I wrote, the user is prompted for a color using
`read-color'. The completion table used there presents color names.
However, based on color names alone, I often found it hard to choose a
color. Therefore I wrote `defined-colors-with-face-attributes' which
like `defined-colors' but adds text properties to the color names that
make them render with the color they name as background. I also
`read-color' to call the new function when a color display is

I have tested the new behavior on X displays and TTYs and it seems to
work. However, I could not test windows or other terminal types and/or
other color depths.

If this change is considered useful, I would like to contribute it. I
have done the copyright assignment for Emacs.

Kind regards,
