How does the RGBW class work in practice...
can u use it as normal with WS2812s... and the white is ignored... but if you use it with the RGBW Leds then it controls the white one?

If you have a NeoPixelBus with NeoRgbFeature, it create a compile error if you try to set pixel using a RgbwColor. The idea being it's letting you know you are losing data.
While the inverse is not true as you are not losing data.
Do you have a reason you would want this to work?

Not yet:)
I'm writing this application that 'does everything' my first version is on GitHub but I'm working on a much 'fancier' one... Anyway... If it was to support the new LEDS then I would have to do some fancy stuff throughout the whole code to get it work. ie drive either by selecting in software
I'm not there yet. Just figuring it out.
