You sure that would really save so much? I mean, we're reusing colors
and fonts right now, too, don't we? And a new object has some overhead
of itself, too. 

Oh well, once we make fonts scaleable, we'll probably need objects for
them anyway. But then I don't think we want to put colors into that,
because we want only one scaleable font object for every font, not one
for every font and color combination.

p.s. Thanks for fixing the add(Renderable) and add(Flob) bug. I didn't
DREAM of that being the reason for the flobs not being interpolated! :/
