[Sugar-devel] [DESIGN] Coloring of entries on storage device

when I have been working on [1] I found that Sugar 0.82 and >= 0.84 
behave differently when coloring the items on a storage device.

In 0.82 when you copied a Journal entry to the device, the entries on 
the device did have the color of the creator of the entries. Other files 
on the stick were shown in black and white. When you did then insert the 
device into another machine you could distinguish the entries on the 
device by the color.

As of today, in >= 0.84 all the entries in the device are in the same 
color, that of the owner of the Journal it is plugged into.

As the color is an indication of ownership I tend to prefer the way it 
was handled in 0.82. Comments, ideas?
