It is important to discuss how the color specification with alpha
component should look like.  Most of the current NS color
specifications are defined arbitrarily without following any existing
standards or discussing with other developers.  I think they should be
revamped (i.e., remove the current code now, and add a new code when
the specification is determined and implementation is added for
GNU/Linux).

It may take time and sometimes cumbersome, but I think it is the right
way to avoid diverging.
