Hi Philippe,

Thanks for PlotKit. It is looking really good. I do have a question
about color schemes. I like the Office Color schemes, but I need
something more tailored to my situation. So I want to use more primary
colors (bright red, green, blue, and what not) for my pie chart.

I'm not sure how to do this. I see PKColorScheme, but am not sure how
to pass it in to the Layout object or options object.

I've tried:

	self layout officeColors
		at: 'colorScheme' put: PKColorScheme light.


	self layout options propertyAt: 'colorScheme' put: PKColorScheme light.

all to no avail. Any ideas on how I can use some of the ColorSchemes
instead of the office colors?
