Wouldn't the current 8bit color limitation of ScummVM become a major 
issue in the future though? since only a single game of GROOVIE game 
engine actually uses 8bit color.

How far do you plan to expand the GROOVIE game engine in the future? as 
I expect adding 16bit color would be easier in separate project, without 
having to worry about how that change, would effect other parts (ie 
other game engines) of ScummVM.
