[Squeakland] graduated fill

With some experimenting in class, we've determined that a morph created
with the draw tools does not have the same set of color/border tiles that
a morth grabbed from the supplies tab has. The latter's tiles enable the
fill stuff whereas the former's don't.

So, that appears to be the end of that thread though I don't understand
why the difference is programmed in as such.
