Gwarl will become famous soon enough
I will confess I didn't bother to understand how it all worked, I just copied from poschengband which in turn had copied from V. But we definitely have more than 16 colors now, and angband itself iirc defines 27 colors. The main-gcu file to my understanding maps angband's internal colors to the 16 color pairs, and the patch maps them to xterm colors (all 27 of them).

Again though it was mostly just copy/paste work that I did and it's entirely possible I'm wrong. MPA-Sil has its own 256 color support, but those colors look 'wrong' to me which is why I went with the vanilla patch instead.
