    attached mail follows:

    I suggest we define for color:
    where "newcolor" is a custom media color.
    and for type
    where "differentType" is a custom media type.
    These formats are consistent with the current custom size.

    I like the syntax for custom media sizes, which can work for proprietary
    (added by some IHV) sizes added to a driver before compilation as well as
    sizes defined by the end user working with an installed driver.
    Do we want to think of something similar for types and colors?
    I see 'Other' in the types section. But this is just one.
    So if I wanted to add two proprietary ones, I'd have to use the same
    keyword. Don't like that.
    Even something like 'Other-N', where 'N' is a positive integer leaves
    everything open. I'm sure there are better ways to do it.
    Same with color?
