They are set insensitive which should IMHO be feedback enough. If you can
think of a better place for the toggle buttons, let us know.

Yes, indeed. We have hidden almost every widget in the GTK+ colorselector
and we had to do it from an idle callback. This broke size allocation. We
should kick the GTK+ color selector and write a simple circle+bar as you

The reason was that many other places (plug-ins, gradient editor) in The
GIMP used to use the plain GTK+ colorselector, so it should also be 
available in the main color selector. Since we plan to use the new 
combined selector everywhere, the circle-shaped GTK+ selector is not really
necessary anymore. GTK+-2.0 replaces it with a triangle colorselector 
anyway, so if we want to keep that circle thing, we have to put the code
into Gimp.
