Is it really so much better than what we have now to justify requiring
yet another library to build Emacs?  If it is, could you tell what are
the main advantages, or point to where those advantages are described?

Btw, 256 colors is not "small" by Emacs standards, because our color
approximation should (and does) work in 8-color terminals as well.
