OptionsChannels allows last fg/bg colors to be edited

In the OptionsChannels dialog it has a couple colors that it displays for reference only and they are tagged with a MESSAGE modifier in the @Parameter notation. They used to just display the numeric RGB strings. However recently they began displaying the actual colors. However the color widget can be manipulated. These colors are not meant to be manipulated. They are recalculated every time just before launching a legacy plugin.

This bug was caused by the message widget not being selected in favor of the color widget. The solution (bf159321) was to increase the priority of the message widgets: *any* input that is a message should be displayed using the message widget, regardless of its type.

Great but now the associated label is not displayed for the colors (run Options > Channels to see). And having an uneditable color rather than the rgb text description would be awesome but is perhaps asking for too much.

As discussed in chat earlier today, best solution will be to stop referencing lastBgColor and lastFgColor as @Parameters and instead manually persist their values by calling e.g. Prefs.get(OptionsChannels.class, "lastBgColor").

The last fg/bg values are now only stored internally and never displayed.
