New Objects

We have added objects to make the language more intuitive for new programmers. To date we have added the following objects:

Colors - provides quick access to available colors
ColorWheel - allows colors to be used more intuitively
MessageBox - creates a WinForms style input (message) box
ProgramWindow - intended as a replacement for GraphicsWindow, with more intuitive methods
ShapeMaker - intended as a replacement for Graphicswindows, with more intuitive methods
Tortoise - intended as a replacement for Turtle, with more intuitive methods
