[Q] xfaces and xpm colormap...

I'm using xfaces now for a long time, but I have the following

I have a bunch of color xpm files, which are the faces of people who
I'm in contact with. (The xpm files contain a big number of colours).
When xfaces is showing the xpm files, the program steals all the
colors in the color-map, causing other applications to fail in
allocating colours.


- Is there a way to tell xfaces to install/not-install it's own colormap?
(in the same way netscape does with the -install/-no-install flag?)

- How can I reduce the number of colours in xpm files?. (Any X-Windows
program that does this?, I was using 'xv', but it seems to produce a
corrupted xpm file if I save it with a reduced color set.)
