Well, actually... We lost our KM capabilities after 2.4. With Emanuele being AWOL, it turned out to be unmaintainable. And in the end, it seems that artists pick colors, not mix them, and then are happy to generate a palette from some base colors automatically. For me, the color mixer isn't high priority anymore.
