the color picker was implemented to choose cmyk colors not to save them
:-) i've found that also really confusing.

sodipodi is not really under developmenmt anymore and the pdf/eps export
wasn't too good... anyway check the page and see if there's anything
going. i can't even remember if sodipodi exported proper cmyk to pdf/eps.
