I could argue either way on this.

I agree that its nasty to have plot colours change in mid-stream,
but I suspect that adding the palette to the display list may not
be the "right" solution.

A different approach would be to map the colour indices (and names)
to RGB values at a slightly higher level.  That way it would be the
RGB values which would be captured in the display list, not the

[ I'm afraid that I think that the whole display list mechanism is
  "wrong".  We need a much higher level way of describing plots. ]
