So, one of my favorite effects from the olden days was the ability to do glinting / pseudo transparency. Sadly, there is no way to do this in the PICO-8 due to cycle timing and memory issues. I would love to see the PAL call replaced with something that accepts three colors rather than two.
something like: tpal c0 c1 c2, which would take all instances where c0 is drawn over c1 with c2. It would take 128 bytes of memory, but there is still plenty of headroom inside of the draw state structure to accommodate this.
