	When Henry Ford started producing Model T's, he said, "You 
can have it in any color you want, as long as it's black." 

	He sold millions of 'em between 1918 and 1928 just like that. 
Then other manufacturers started getting a significant market 
share, and lo and behold, Model A's were offered in choice of six 
colors, but black was still the default.
