    You are incorrect. Check the autodocs and includes again. You can set RGB values directly.

    I would really like to see this exact implementation (to ease portability) in AmigaOS4.1.3 or OS4.2, unless there is already such a functionality implemented that I have missed of course.

    Let be clear on something. AmigaOS is the leader. AmigaOS defines the Amiga's API. The clones are the followers. We will not be implementing API changes to "ease portability" because clones are the ones who must change to match the official API. As a developer, you should expect the platforms to continue to diverge.

    Yeah, but you're not Amiga - you're just some Hyperion wannabe.

    While there's surely a difference between Trevor and A-Eon, I consider the difference between "Trevor camp" and "A-Eon camp" to be of similar extent as the one between "Hermans camp" and "Hyperion camp" :-)
