Whoah!  I honestly didn't expect this many replies to my original message!
:-D  I like the idea of:

gradient(<color>, <extent>, <color>, <extent>, <angle>)

But, if were going this far, why don't we go even further?
Here's what I mean:

pattern(<type>, <color>, <extent>, <color>, <extent>, <angle>, ....)

(I have the elipses to indicate that one may want to have more than two
colors in a gradient, as in a rainbow, for example.)

where <type> can be:
gradient

boxes
bricks
bubbles
buttons
cargo-net
circles
circuits
cobblestones
colosseum
critters
daisies
diagonal-lines
diamonds
dizzy
field-effect
horizontal-lines
houndstooth
key
leaves
live-wire
marble
metal-links
paisley
pattern
pinstripe
plaid
quilt
rivets
rounder
scales
scottie
spinner
stitches
stone
straw-mat
tartan
thatches
tile
triangles
tulip
vertical-lines
waves
waffle
weave
zigzag

or an address for a bitmapped-texture to apply to the two (or more) colors.
