As follows:

if terminal is 256-color capable,

   extract xterm color number (color100 -> 100
   set display for object to color number


This would entail:

  . change of syntax in .weechatrc where color... is recognized as           

  . implementation of color theme files that are read at startup

  . implementation of a "/color" command that would let you the user switch
to a different color theme on the fly

  . implementation to change a specific color on the fly

  . possibility to save the current colors to a theme file - useful when you
tweak your color theme interactively and saves you the trouble of entering it
manually in a color theme file.

Note: apart from the option of saving a modified color theme to a file, this
is exactly the way it's implemented in mutt and (1) it works very nicely ..
and (2) it's probably just as well to use something that already works well
in another app in view of consistency .. ergonomics is what I have in mind.
