watercolors the other palettes weren't disabled :)

and then a placeholder for the palette associated with the currently
selected colorspace could be offer as an option ? and the history of
colors goes in the swatches ?

the palette shown all the time then, I will check that. But because
photoshop do something one way, doesn't mean we have to follow them.
