Hi Jozsef - the current version actually associates the color "one" with
all partitions such that (partition_number % 10) == 0, the color "two"
with all the partitions s.t. (partition_number % 10) == 1, etc.

I've increased the number of colors in the carousel from 10 to 20, and
changed the numbering to start at "zero" instead of "one". It should be
less confusing this way :-)

I don't understand your question: the color is already chosen according
to the partition number (in the file).
