By the way, if I were going to use a separate table for the list of
colors, for instance for performance purposes, I'd still use the name
of the color as the key, thus avoiding doing a join every single time
you do a select.  The lookup would only be necessary when doing adds,
in order to check the foreign key constraint.  The lookup table on
color would have only one column, the color name.
