No, you don't. I started saying the same thing (then got sidetracked 
into trying to define it as a general operation on sets, then abandoned 
the idea as silly) in my last, but.... why not just background -= 
Color.RED? Just like sets.

It's different from C, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
