Dear Stephan,

Thanks for doing this work. Please let us know
when you submit the mpcolornames to CTAN.

Now on my wish list is that one can somehow access
the same colors in both LaTeX and MetaPost. In figure
captions, I sometimes want to write 'red' in red to
bring attention to some red feature in the graphic.
Would be nice to have the red in LaTeX and MetaPost
match one another.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this easily?

Best Regards,
