rfc: basic color support

Hello all,

Just for fun, I've hacked up a patch that provides basic color support
(only in the ps backend).

Why color:
Sometimes when I teach music, I find colors to be helpful ("today
we're gonna learn a new note: the f note. All the red notes in this
piece are f's").

Short description of the patch:
scm/define-grob-properties.scm: introduce the color property
scm/output-ps.scm: {set,reset}color commands.
lily/ (interpret_stencil_expression): when a "colored
expression" is encountered: save current color, process the
expression, restore color.
lily/ (get_line): check all grobs for color property and
prepare the stencil scheme expressions for further processing in

NB: This patch is just a request for comments. Use it like this:
\override <grob> #'color = #'(1.0 0.0 0.0)
The scheme list is an RGB color. Values must be between 0.0 and 1.0.
