Comment(by walter):

 Not sure what the bug is here. get_random_color returns a string, not an
 xocolor object, so you cannot use it with methods that want an xocolor as
 an argument. You can convert a string to an xocolor using the factory
 method as per below:

 >>> import xocolor
 >>> c = xocolor.get_random_color()
 >>> print c
 >>> type(c)
 <type 'str'>
 >>> c2 = xocolor.XoColor(c)
 >>> c3 = xocolor.get_next_fill_color(c2)
 >>> print c3

 Are you suggesting that the get methods take strings as arguments instead
 of XoColors? Or I could test for the argument type and do the "right"
 thing depending upon the argument type. But what is the use case?
