I'd be in for implementing the Tango color chooser part of it at least.
Should we define a "interface" for every view before proceeding or
is the "final" chooser going to have a pre-defined set of "views" (e.g.
some color palettes like "Tango" and the GIMP chooser).

Also, I have been thinking of implementing relevant parts of the code
in Vala (and then either compiling the vala code to C source code for
the library or build-depending on Vala, if this is okay with you) - makes
it easier to write code more quickly and avoids some mistakes when
trying to write GObject code directly in C (at least that's my opinion ;).

This does not mean that we should the whole code in Vala, but as
Vala can compile directly into C code with support for proper GObjects,
it seems to be a nice way to do at least some parts of the library, right?
