I'm guessing that it's been missing for some time now ... colors.inc is 
at revision 4 in perforce and I did "diff" on all previous versions 
(back to 2001.7.21). I didn't see it! I'm going to wait on removing it 
from the docs ... to see if anyone else has any input on the issue, as 
I'm clueless on this one.
