return a list that provides the necessary information to color samples
according to cluster and create a legend for it:
"colorVector" A vector the same length as the number of samples, assigning a color to each cluster of the primaryCluster of the object.
"legendNames" A vector the length of the number of clusters of primaryCluster of the object giving the name of the cluster.
"legendColors" A vector the length of the number of clusters of primaryCluster of the object giving the color of the cluster.
output="aheatmap" a conversion of the clusterLegend to be
in the format requested by
aheatmap. The column 'name'
is used for the names and the column 'color' for the color of the clusters.
"matrixColors" a matrix the
