This sounds like a job for the wiki -- I'm not sure I'm using features 
to their best advantage.  Probably most of us only use a few colors in 
any given document, but I fear that if I get rid of unused colors too 
soon I won't figure out how to get access to the big list again.  I see 
the "Append" button in the color editor, but that just brings up a file 
requestor -- what am I supposed to do with that?
