Okay, but when will it be ? Within this century ?

As you already pointed out, these #ifdef's are really smell.
And I'm gonna clean it up. And I'm doing that now, not in 10 years.

If you've got the new colormap handling, put in the cirle, but
please don't try to stop me from doing smaller cleanups, just 
because they are not perfect enough. 

I suggest going in small steps continously instead of spending 
years for trying giant jumps.
