I use a comination of these methods. The library uses a custompropertyset to
directly map from colorname to rgb. This is the most efficient way to do it.
However, it is also self updating so in the event of Raney adding a new
colorname constant it's only a matter of calling a handler to reset the
custompropertyset.
