Implementing add color

LO has a named list of colors that can be used as fill / stroke colors for all objects. A new color can be added through Tools > Options > Color.

However if I open a document (say a ppt) which has objects with colors not added to LO, I cannot save that color to the list of colors. The only way to use it is to use the copy format tool, won't be so convenient because it will change all formatting along with fill color.

On selecting an object who's fill / stroke colors are not added, the respective color picker drop down list on the menu bar automatically adds a new icon (with the selected object color) with an empty bracket pair '[]'.

New Feature Required
Provision to add the selected object's fill / stroke color on selecting it in the color selection drop down list in the menu bar.

works with current color tools.
Select fist green shape, then red one, and notice that in the side bar, under recent colors for the background, green is available.
