atm this is only used in the OpenCSG and Thown Together display modes.

there are two problems with colors in STL: 1. I don't know how to pass this
kind of metadata thru CGAL and 2. I did some research on the web but did
not find any satisfying documentation of colors in STL. It seams like
everyone is doing his or her own extensions to STL to add color to the file

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
