at a time?
If they're using ncurses, they're limited by what that library supports.
(256 colors max, IIRC.) Dittos for slang-based apps.
It's been a while since I looked at konsole (I use roxterm myself), but
what many terminal emulators let you do is map a subset of those 16M
colors into the 256-color palette used by the apps. That's not quite
the same as letting you display all 16M colors concurrently.
