I wrote this into Blender as a test, and while it did work it was
somewhat confusing to new users. What was suggested at that time (which
is, alas, beyond my coding ability) was an option button in the User
Preferences pane which would permit toggling back & forth between
decimal (Far more precise) and RGB (the standard for most other
programs) for those values dealing with color.
This might be a good proposal!
