I can't find a color scheme designer that works the way I think it should. I want to specify the color space, indicate a type of scheme (complementary, analogic, etc.), specify the base color, number of colors with the degrees of spread and have the tool kick out the basic scheme and HSB variant axes. Finally I want to export the scheme with simple decimal descriptions (why do people continue to use hex? Is this 1995?) of the components or in a palette format such as ACO. The site linked to below is the best designer I've found, but its not quite there. I'm trying to talk myself out of writing a tool. If any of you know of better tools, please let me know.

Not intending to come off in a sarcastic manner but, I went through the process of answering the question technically and I came up with the same result I did for myself after sifting through available tools: the eyes.
Hi Steven - If you are working on corporate identity guides that includes things like sets of 8+ colors for charts I think you will find that color scheme design tools can be great time savers. Of course, in the end, your eyes should be the final judge, but I suspect you use some design tools to assist "the eyes" on your Skyfarm projects ;-) I say this with great respect for your work, which always looks amazing.

Alex Bergo suggested Kuler, which has most of the features I want.
