I did make a test where two of the 24 colors in the "source" image are 
identical. It's impossible to map one color to two different target 
colors. Shouldn't colormap throw an error message? Instead it quietly 
copies the input to the output.
Is it possible to print the RMS error (before and after mapping) to the 
console output?
