More colors?

The Nano man page online refers to "set functioncolor" to get the exhaustive list of available colors: white, black, blue, green, red, cyan, yellow and magenta (+"normal").

On my terminal, the text's color is cyan4. Nano has no problem with that because the color is set by URxvt, not by Nano.

When I program, I'd like the comments (starting with "#") to be in a slightly different color, such as cyan2, through the syntax coloring scheme. It is then that Nano's limitations on colors strike. A configuration directive such as
        color cyan2 "([^\\]|^)#.*"
        color "#fff" "([^\\]|^)#.*"
produces an error.

Is there a way around this that I did not find?
Or is there a plan to introduce more colors, by name or by hex code?

Kind regards,
