1. i really did not remember the correct invocation of the "toddler" (my
fault of course)
2. but since you can check the type of atoms that are passed (e.g. check
whether there are 2 symbols and 2 floats) you can always take [the one
symbol to be "active colour"] vs [the first of 2 symbols to be background
and the second to be foreground], regardless where the floats are passed.
3. this is what you might call "tricky" (of course it is not, but mykes
the code a little bit more unreadable)
