Why is that good?  Anyway, as I said before, this is Stefans call.
But I always assumed we are talking post-release here as your code
clearly don't belong in a feature freeze.  Again, Stefans call.

In the short term, indeed, Daniel's patch is too new for 24.4.
But in the longer term, I like the idea of being able to write Elisp
code to fine-tune the colors.

So the :distant-foreground might not be useful after 24.4.

IOW, if we keep it for 24.4, I think we should hide it so we can remove
it later.  Not sure how to do that, tho.

What do you guys think?

Right. There's a dilemma here --- that's why I'm suggesting we should revert to 24.3 behavior and, for the next release, implement the functionality in a more general way. I don't think the original bug is a release blocker.
