On the discreet Maxscript forum Dave Stewert asked if there was a
function to call the color selector. Well there wasn't so I wrote this
maxscript extension. This function programmaticly calls the color
picker dialog. So here it is.

The syntax is like this:

<< color >> GetColorPicker << Title : String >> [alpha: boolean]

is a required argument, and must be passed a string. Title is just as
it sounds; The string is displayed on the system bar of the dialog.

Alpha is an optional argument and if passed true brings up the colorpicker that supports floating point numbers (for mental ray)
