Improve color widgets

In plugins you can specify ColorRGB parameters. The widget that lets you edit them could use some improvements:

  • support specifying RGB and HSB values
  • support a more fine grained space of clickable values (maybe the widget needs to be bigger too)

The Swing color widget is not something we built from scratch, but rather uses  JColorChooser. So these types of changes are predicated on being able to customize the JColorChooser accordingly. Either that, or reimplementing our own widget, or finding a suitable third party color chooser implementation.

For what it's worth, you *can* already specify RGB and HSB values using the "RGB" and "HSB" tabs of the widget. As for "more fine grained space of clickable values" I think the HSB widget is very fine-grained. Please close this ticket if you agree; otherwise please add more detail on what you would like to see improved.

Hopefully 84633b7c, which reorders the tabs so that the HSB tab is first, removes any shadow of confusion about the color chooser. Please close if you agree.
