Should be doable, depending on how ambitious we get about refactoring
me of the existing code.

This is still in the new design in that I didn't remove it from the
code. (If you click on the central XO icon, you get a random color as
before.) It is a decision I leave to the design team.

There is an invisiable icon that provides the undo fuctionality. (I
think thatit is important if we keep the random function.) I do have a
technical probem to sort out with Tomeu regarding the various widgets
I am using for the buttons. I cannot seem to find a way to include
both keyboard accelration and the ability to update the icon color
either in Suar toolkit or in the hulahop code. Hence the comment above
about more invasive changes.
