Sculpt vertex color improvements for 2.91 #78041

This is a task with the minimal improvements that are needed for vertex colors before the release.

  • Improve confusing distinction between sculpt vertex colors and legacy vertex colors
  • UI: an idea would be to have a single Vertex Colors panel, which list both new and legacy vertex colors in a single list, with an option to convert the legacy colors.
  • Python API: rename from sculpt vertex colors to something else. Could become a single vertex_colors collection with new and legacy colors if the above UI idea is used. (depends on #76659)
  • Support rendering sculpt vertex colors in Vertex Color and Attribute nodes. There is a button to convert to legacy colors, but this is not good enough.
  • Eevee
  • Cycles
  • Vertex Color node autocomplete name of both sculpt and legacy vertex colors
  • Viewport rendering of sculpt vertex colors with modifiers enabled
  • Find a way to immediately show vertex colors when starting to paint in sculpt mode. Perhaps the sculpt overlay settings could have an option to show vertex colors, that under the hood does the same thing as enabling Vertex color, but for just the objects in sculpt mode. This might also be useful in that you don't usually want to scene all objects in the scene with vertex colors.
  • Add icon for toolbar
  • Update importers and exporters for new colors, and attributes in general
    • USD
    • Alembic
    • Add-ons
  • Multires vertex colors
  • Optimize GPU storage by storing colors per vertex instead of per loop when possible

We can handle Multires support for sculpt vertex colors in a separate patch. What I would like to add to this list is the support of rendering sculpt vertex colors in the viewport with modifiers enabled (at least with subdivision surfaces)

Feel free to update the list yourself as well, I just wanted to make an initial one to understand the scope.
