I'd prefer not to make such a significant change in
tty-color-standard-values before the release.  The current scheme
worked well for several 21.x releases, and I don't think we should
make radical changes in it now, before we've seen the 256-color xterm
support in a released Emacs.  Let's wait until after the release.

But I think the info above means that we should leave
color-name-rgb-alist alone, since it already uses the scheme James
says is now standard in X, and changing it now just to change it back
for the next release sounds silly.
