[Orca-dev] Mapping live_rules state to numerical value

Hi All,

In the Orca group we're working on a single plot to show how each subsystem
is performing using the live_rules.se class.  These are the states shown in


To map state to number I'm thinking of something exponential like:

	WHITE	=>	 0
	BLUE	=>	 1
	GREEN	=>	 2
	AMBER	=>	 4
	RED	=>	 8
	BLACK	=>	16

Is this mapping representative of the severity, or would people suggest a
different mapping, such as linear?
