No disagreement here.  We can and we shall live with it.   Also, whether things
need to be grouped together because the are "similar" is a matter of opinion.  

I, personally, don't see any reason to put colors and colorpickers into one
common directory (even if they do live in subdirs of that directory).  Although
they are related (one defines colors and the other allows the user to pick
them) they are not the same thing and it would be confusing to put them
