Thanks for the motivating replies :-)

I have it working now for simple fills and strokes, and also for
gradients. Working on other color stuff...

My question is: where should this be in the UI. I feel the view mode
toggle (which is actually a "cycle") is becoming a bit crowded, or is
that ok? Perhaps this view mode toggle would work better if it would
toggle between Normal mode and the last used other mode. So then you
could click "outline mode", and then toggle back and forth between
normal and outline. Or click grayscale mode, and toggle between that and
normal...
What do you think?

Ciao,
  Johan
