Bug Description

When picking a color it would be very useful to know which colors may not display properly for those with color blindness/defects. More information on what types there are can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_blindness

Additionally, for ideas of how this might be implemented take a look at this website http://colorschemedesigner.com/ (under the Colorblind tab) and at Scribus (I use 1.5)

Scribus documentation:

<http://documentation.scribus.net/index.php/Color_Wheel> (Scribus 1.4)
