Configurable Products Nightmare

I have a new client who is really excited about Magento. I was excited too.

Right up until I read about configurable products. The primary product for the store is a piece of apparel with two color attributes, both of which have over 50 color options. As I currently understand things, that means I need to create over 2500 skus, not counting sizes?

I need to implement this store *now*—Magento has been out since last year. I find it hard to believe that A) this is even a requirement and, B), that someone else hasn’t solved the problem. I must be missing something.

Please help!

This functionality will be greatly facilitated with the much anticipated bundles feature in the next release (1.1). With bundles you will only have to create one product for every color or size and then group it with a single product like a shirt.
