   By coincidence, I had literally just started writing a little "color
   editor" demo when this message came in.  This is what I came up with.

   There are a few things to notice:
    - the slightly different callback function for the Exit button
    - the way the RGB sliders are linked to the IHS sliders
    - different way of painting the color swatch, which is lower overhead
      than changing the medium backgound of the display pane
    - use of the PANE-FRAME function rather than *APPLICATION-FRAME*

   Note that you seem not have a complete implementation of COLOR-RGB and
   COLOR-IHS -- I just did those recently.  Also, I had to fix a bug in
   WINDOW-VIEWPORT for panes that do not have scrollbars.

Thanks, I found your color demo helpful in clearing up a lot of
points. I am still puzzled by one aspect of slider callbacks.
Originally, I defined a method on DRAG-CALLBACK, but that didn't seem
to have any effect, so I switched to VALUE-CHANGED-CALLBACK. I noticed
in your example that you define identical methods on both. Are they
both called when the slider is dragged, or is one supposed to
supersede the other?
