For this kind of thing (something like the eyes that follow your mouse) 
would it just be math (calculating a certain distance from the center of 
the object you're over) or would use an objects "colorUnder" at all?

After playing with "colorUnder" in some experiments last night, I'm 
leaning toward math, but I'd prefer to hear it from an expert.  I'd 
prefer it so I could also ask: what kind of situation is "colorUnder" 
best used for?
