It could be because ColorPickerMorph lets Morphic handle live stepping 
during drag over the whole display while the new one doesn't; Drag works 
only over the SVColorSelector and a new pick mode is introduced to move 
outside this selector. I do like the new picker's size. It is much 
easier on my aging vision than the old one.

ColorPickerMorph has its faults. Its buildChartForm/initialize uses 
hard-coded box extents that are too small for modern displays and its 
hover help strings are shown under the pane :-(. But its live stepping 
while moving the mouse over the whole display in its pickUpColorFor: and 
its automatic dismissal on mouseUp are definite plusses. They make 
changing color a quick and smooth experience.
