Can I trust the results to be valid for all X installations?  At
least on GNU/Linux, someone could modify the sources of the toolkits
to use different defaults, or use some configuration files which
don't work though the X resource database.  If something like that is
possible, Emacs will do the wrong thing.

I like better what Gerd seemed to be suggesting: add to xrdb.c code
that defines X resources for the default colors.  We already do that
for the background colors; all I need to add is similar code for the
foreground colors.  Then we will always be able to get the default
colors from x_get_resource.  Does that sound reasonable?
