The concept of Background color is very nice.

On the Lynx I have extended a special tgi_ioctl command for setting a 
background color.

The default background color can be transparent. So when you type text 
only the text-color pixels are painted.

But if you set tgi_bgcolor to something then the text bounding box will 
be painted with that color automatically.

And I also do not like the added complexity to have color allocation 
before use.

pen blue
draw line

is enough for me.

For sprite programming you bang the chips directly and bypass tgi-based 
color allocation anyway.
