Are you referring to checking current-column using Lisp code in the
display spec?  (Remember, we don't know what's the limiting column when
generating the buffer; we only find out at redisplay time.)  I don't
think it's a good idea to make the color names anything but ordinary
text.  I would just discard the "fitting aliases" feature, if it's too
much work to implement properly (it's new to the trunk anyway).
