Reasons for multiple colormaps:

 - Some hardware supports multiple simultaneous visuals (8 bit and 24 bit)

 - In the days when 8 bit was common, sometimes the only way of handling
   limited colors was to install a different colormap on different windows
   and change the colormap with the focus.

 - In GTK+-2.2, GTK+ will support multiple simultaneous displays; each
   will have it's own set of colormaps.

Generally, with GTK+-2.0, the idea is that you can just use the default
colormap (what gtk_widget_get_colormap() returns for your widget) and
things will work well.
