The `official' way to load color support is this:

  \input miniltx
  \def\Gin at driver{pdftex.def}
  \input color.sty

If we don't do it in eplain.tex, then we would need to write
a macro for loading a color driver, e.g.

    \input miniltx
    \def\Gin at driver{#1}%
    \input color.sty

and have the user call it after loading eplain, if they want
to use colors.  Again, we can make the parameter optional,
and do the detection if it is omitted.  Is this what you
