Well, what I'm suggesting is just adding these constants, which is a 5 minute patch. I'm not allowed to release my client's bitmap font format (which I invented) into the wild. It would be nice to have a standard coloured-bitmap font format but it would probably not be a good idea for me to invent it for obvious reasons.

convenient when creating bitmap fonts from PNG images.  [...]
This sounds great!  Are you going to implement this?
