Re: TODO List Item: Integrate New Color Selector

	I think the main problem with the GTK+ color selection dialog is
something Windows got right -- a color history with some default colors
which you can jump to.  This allows you to match colors between
applications more easily.  I can make a GIMP mock up, but KDE and Windows
both seem to have it. (Although the color selector they have for
"custom" colors is terrible.)
