That would be even better.

Yes, a much better version of a color picker, based on Colors! is part of the Icon-O-Matic code.

I wish I had more time, but, I have a system worked out that is much more elaborate than simply adding a color picker based on Colors! or using the Icon-O-Matic color picker to Appearance. What I've created is a system by which you can have several plugable color pickers, so Appearance could use one, Backgrounds another, Icon-O-Matic a third.
It would be up to the developer to install their own color picker in the right place
And the user could also pick a different default color picker by setting the mime type in FileTypes. It is based on an idea by Pavel and I've much expanded the idea and built a few basic color pickers. I haven't build one based on Colors! or Icon-O-Matic but it would be pretty easy to do that once all the other pieces are in place.
I would also like to further improve this by having a system wide set of color wells (squares of colors that you can save) that would be available to all color pickers.

hi jscipione, are there any news about your color pickers?

I added support for the Colors! color picker and I’ve added preliminary color container support but that still needs some work. If you’re really interested I could provide a binary to test the feature out.

Yes, I'm interested!

Haiku Color picker binaries with sample app. See README.txt for installation instructions.
Something like it (I think it's even based on Werner's code) is already used in Icon-O-Matic. I'd love to see it integrated in a generally overhauled color picker in the API that's used everywhere, e.g. Backgrounds too.
