Kristian is working on gridded-picker/combo thingies. We certainly
shouldn't have other gridded-picker/combo thingies which don't
use the GTK+ gridded-picker/combo thingy code :-)
A) if you are fond of the general division of the Gnumeric code,
then you should push Kris in that direction (of course,
Kris still needs to present what he is working on :-)
B) I suppose we could throw something into CVS with a different
backend implementation and then replace it, but that only
makes sense to me if the different backend is really simple
(couple of hundred lines of code) and I don't that's the
case for using the GtkExtra or GAL widgets.

into CVS, call it something really generic (GtkColorPicker
or GtkColorButton) and then choose the implementation we want
