What about five band resistors?  ;)

You could add a bit for capacitors too.  Scratch that, looks like they don't use bands on caps much any more.

@justabeginner: Thanks! Nice little resistance colour-band decoder/calculator. I don't think I've seen one like that before.

@justabeginner: Hope you don't mind too much, but I sent an email with a link to this project/discussion to http://www.adafruit.com/
Its just the sort of thing they could find useful and might broadcast on their blog.   :)
