For some idea of useful color functionality in the OpenGL

GltColor C++ class for RGB color representation

Open Scene Graph RGBA color representation

OpenGL pixel image formats and types

Qt QColor class for GUI color representation

Wish list:

* Flexible representation RGB, RGBA, YUV, HSV and conversions between
* Machine level-representation RGBA, BGRA, etc
* Conversion to and from HTML std::string #rrggbb
* Interpolating between colors in various color spaces (HSV is cylindrical!)
* Named colors: boost::black, boost::white, etc
* Operations such as brighten, darken, gamma adjustment, etc


* Leave image processing out of scope, image processing could layer on top.
