I hope for this library to become the standard colour library for Haskell. 
Most software does not properly blend colours because they fail to 
gamma-correct the colours before blending.  Hopefully by using this 
library, Haskell programs dealing with colour blending will avoid this 

I am making an early release of my colour library to get some feedback. I 
am especially interested in getting feedback on the interfaces: should 
functions be renamed, should functions be moved, etc. Should I put black 
and white colours into Data.Colour?  Which is better form making a colour: 
(sRGB r g b) or (sRGB (r,g,b))?

Bug reports and any patches are also welcome.  Be warned, I haven't 
extensively tested this library yet.
