It is the Answer Color that I am most interested in.  I know I could "roll
my own" for a simple Answer dialog box, but it is the answer color that I
need for my solution.  Right now, it pops up in the middle of the screen
and I really want it to be close to the mouse position when I click on the
control that calls this dialog.
There is no way that I am going to try to roll my own version of this one
because, as you point out, it triggers and OS API and I wouldn't know how
to do that and position the picker in the right location.
