class DrawPanel
extends Panel
The DrawPanel object is Kali's actual drawing area. It receives and handles the mouse events related to drawing, maintains the list of line segments that have been drawn (and their colors), keeps track of whether we're drawing a temporary segment (the segment that follows the mouse during drawing), and if so, its coordinates.

The screen is drawn in Kali whenever the system calls the DrawPanel's paint() method; this method goes through the list of current segments, and calls the Panorama's drawSegement() method for each one.
