I've updated CVS with this patch (and the other bug fixes mentioned). I
ended up going with the order red,yellow,cyan,green,magenta,blue from
newest to oldest, since that at least crudely approximates the color
direction for the proper hue wheel map (magenta aside).  I use this
special map only for 8 color TTY devices.  I went to some trouble to allow
for default colors which don't have these standard names, since I wasn't
sure if they were the same across all terminals.

Dan Nicolaescu gave me the hint to try:

 set TERM=xterm-256color

in recent xterms.  Emacs in terminal mode there looks fantastic, and the
new rotating hue colormap does very well.  Here's hoping all terminals
quickly migrate to 256 colors.
