[Plone-UI] CSSManager, base_properties - simplification (plone3)

This has been my approach with SubSkins (actually I use 6 colors, the  
plan was to have 5  "normal" colors, and one "descreet", typically a  

3 or 4  colors is needed for the menues.
Another color might be needed for the (whole) background.

What I would love to have in my product is another version of  
CSSManager that lets one edit the selections made in the colorschemes.
(So if anyone can help with this, it would be great)
