You are certainly right :-) However, I just wanted to keep it simple 
while working on a scene, and get a colour complementary to another 
there, without all the complications I know nothing about anyway. You 
know, "I have this colour, what is its quick-and-dirty complement". That 
kind of thing. As I said, nothing special, just handy to have at hand 
while doing other things.
