please coordinate with the kofffice team. they have just started looking at a 
new color chooser widget.

and honestly, i don't think this complexity is needed by the vast majority of 
colour using applications, and therefore in kdelibs. think of the person 
picking colours for use in kmail or katepart ... do they really need this 
feature or would it be just one more piece of widgetry in there? note that a 
bunch of work has already been done on the colour picker dialog for kde4, 
though i'm not sure if all the remaining bugs were worked out (i should check 

at best it would be an option enabled via the API, but i'd rather see such 
advanced colour choosing go into koffice's widget since they have real use 
cases for it and it actually fits at home there as opposed to most apps in
