This is 'still' not really clear - Okay say I have a variable 'i' do I do
i = 0;
and then use the << and >> operators, or do I just do it without any 
When do I use << and when do I use >>? What order must they be in?

Secondly - the RGBA values you gave are confusin - how do I get them from 
a GnomeColorPicker - do I take the 'gdouble' values, do I take the 
'guint8' or the 'guint16'?

Can you give me an example? Like 
guint8 R,G,B,A;
guint32 fill_color = 0;

fill_color = fill_color << R << G << B << A;

Will the above work correctly? If not what should I do?
