[Mandelbrot] Code Samples/Comparisons

I've been fascinated by the Mandelbrot set for some years now, so this  
is a welcome topic. Bill Marriott's stack got me going in the past few  
days. I added colorization -- a fairly ad hoc scheme that I fine tuned  
(sort of) by trial and error. I moved the controls to a palette and  
separated out the calculations of the escape values from the  
colorization handlers. The escape values are stored as a custom prop  
so they don't have to be recalculated every time you adjust the colors  
-- much easier to play with the colorization. Also, you can export the  
resulting images as jpegs -- they make good screensaver shots if you  
go with an 800x800 image, though those take a number of minutes to  

Please, someone who knows more about working in colorspaces should  
come up with something better thought out, but meanwhile, it's a fun  
toy anyway.... Thanks for the head start, Bill.
