Waooh, nice work! Many thanks for it. But I think we should integrate it
into the current color selection systems. Here are some quick thoughts
  * in dialogs and toolbars this could be used for an advanced color
  * we shouldn't remove the use of a set of common colors defined in one
or several palettes.
  * That dialog would be even nicer if it remembers the previously
picked (10 or so) colors.
