[Etoys] [Squeakland] color category in OLPC

In the traditional Squeakland image, there are in fact no color- 
related items offered in a Sketch's viewer.

But some olpc-specific changes over the past year resulted in the  
addition of several new color-related slots and a refactoring of the  
color-related categories, and as a result we've for some time now  
we've been seeing the spurious color category and its spurious color- 
related slots being offered in a Sketch's viewer.

I've entered this bug on the TRAC system as ticket #5437 "Viewer for  
SketchMorph should not show color-related items".

And I've just published an update to the etoys2.3 update stream  
(1827sketchColor-sw) which fixes the bug.
