[rrd-users] newbie: good choices of color for graphing 10+ objects

[newbie alert]

I searched the archives, but I can't find many entries with color
or colour which seem to relate to how you choose good colour which
are visually distinctive.

I saw one reference to a method of counting the number of things to
be plotted, mapping into HSV space, and selecting <n> colours which
are widely spaced. Could this be done as a discrete tool outside of
rrdgraph, so we can prep colours in?

Is there maybe a reasonable list of colours to pick which is a static
table? Sure, not everyone likes the red, or the green, but I am finding
my brain hurts trying to think in #FFFFFF space.
