I am currently looking at this. I don't see why the bit patterns have
to be anything special at the moment, but there is always a good
reason for the code as is. The OR'd result should be correct for all
colours, no matter what their bit pattern is. I need to do some
testing. In the code I think it would be nice to get away from the
colour lookup array and allow people to use a standard colour picker.
