This litle command was done because I had some problems with the
MagicWB-Demon.

 o It sometimes crashed at startup (after doing Colorado, I found out that
   the fault was in the kickstart 8( - Solution; PatchOpenWB)

 o It could only set the middle colors (4-11 on 16 col. screens...)

 o You had to type in alot of numbers to set your colors (col n,r,g,b)

 o Couldn't load after WB was started.

 o Its size was 16832 bytes...

I did Colorado which sets the full palette by writing a new
Env:Sys/Palette.Prefs, and allocating the colors in the middle. The colors are
taken from either a palette or picture file, and in case of a picture, it
writes out a new Env:Sys/WBPattern.Prefs holding the picture as background
with disabled remap.

The beauty of all this is; If you try to scale'n'remap a picture in ImageFX,
lock the first 8 colors to MWB and render it in 16 colors, you often get
quite good results, then just write "Colorado <PICTURE>", and volla, youre WB
looks superb!

I did this command in june last year, and I was actually planning alot more,
but never got time. Meanwhile alot of my friends commented my always nice
looking WB pictures, and wanted a copy of Colorado, so I thought that
somebody might wanted to take over the source or just the idea...
