Actually the "colornames" property has been there since day one, but RR
has always hidden it. You can set colors by name via the message box or
script though. I haven't looked at Hugh's stack yet, but it sounds like
he's making use of that.
Completely aside: I often use the colornames when I want to generate
random input for testing, or assemble a random string. "get any
<char|line|word> of the colornames" is a quick way to do that when you
just need a big list of text as a source. The colornames is really long,
so there are lots of lines available.
