Please keep in mind, that the color list is used in many places in the
UI. If there are too many colors, it might make the dialogs and the
color bar unusable.

System performance is not affected, when 50K colours are in the palette.
It is affected when things akin to _The Ultimate Colour Palette_, whose
URL I posted the other day, are installed. (If you really want to use
that as for your daily work, I hope you have about 1 TB of RAM reserved
for LibO.)

Once there are more than around 200 colours in the palette, the major
issue is finding the specific colour.

How the palette is organized can make the difference between finding the
colour, and not finding it.

The three major ways of organizing the palette are:
* By RGB  or CYMK value;
* By name in English, or other language;
* By placement in the rainbow;
Sorting by RGB, CYMK or name is fairly simple.

Sorting by placement in the rainbow is painstakingly time-consuming.
For various reasons, most people seem to want the palettes to be be
organized that way.
