"The one posted in a previous thread looked slightly green. Drab olive. Interesting snake, but not a color phase I would be too tempted to breed for."
To each his own, and if she isn't your cup of tea, that's cool. I consider her color to be beautiful and unique, which to me makes it an extremely tempting color phase to breed for. Personally I would be EXTATIC if she produced a litter of 10 that looked exactly like her, but that's just me.

"What I would love to see is a patternless grey animal. I have seen a single specimen, and it looked incredible. Not a patch of pattern."
I have also seen a patternless grey - probably the same animal - and I too would like to see more. But the question is: how do you produce one intentionally? It's relatively common to see patternless yellow, orange, or red animals, but you never see patternless grey or brown, except for the occasional fluke. I have a beautiful slate grey male, and a (nearly) patternless yellow female, but I doubt that breeding them would be much more likely to produce patternless grey offspring than any other pair. ATB genetics just don't seem to work that way.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter, though.
