Honestly? I'd actually prefer HSL only instead of HSV :-)... but I just 
realized another reason; Windows uses HSL. This could therefore improve 
Windows integration. What would you think about making at configurable 
system-wide in a kcm? We could make the default dependent on the 
platform (i.e. HSV on Linux, HSL on Windows).
