Don't worry I only meant underused in the scanline render :) Realtime is 
another story entirely, and still they can be made to make use of more 
of Blender's rendering capability it seems, although python'ers seem to 
like taking care of these sorts of things. Just thoughts ;)

As for only being able to apply vertex colors to the selected faces, why 
does this present a problem? If you're in face selected mode would you 
WANT to be able to apply face colors only to selected faces? And being 
in vertex paint mode at the same time poses a problem why?

Just curious why this is an issue.
