I like the idea, but I haev to say, I really don't like the "color"
terminology.  Also, it seems overly flexible.  Is there a use case
which would not be satisfied by assigning one string to each
ChangeSource (instead of many in a dictionary), and matching that
against a list of strings in the scheduler?  If we do that, then we
don't need a new metaphor -- we can just use the name of the
ChangeSource object:

c['change_source'] = [ ..
  ChangeSource(name="foo", ..)
  ChangeSource(name="bar" ..)
  ChangeSource(name="ding", ..)

c['schedulers'] = [
  Scheduler(changeSources=['foo', 'ding'], ...
