Summary description: Provides \thepagecolor
License type: LPPL

Announcement text:
provides the command \thepagecolor, which gives the current page
(background) colour, i. e. the argument used with the most recent call
of \pagecolor{...}.

The command \thepagecolornone gives the same colour as \thepagecolor,
except when the page background colour is "none" (e. g. result of
using the \nopagecolor command). In that case \thepagecolor is "white"
and \thepagecolornone is "none".
