#' HCL-Based Discrete Sequential Color Scales for ggplot2
#'
#' Discrete ggplot2 color scales using the color palettes generated by \code{\link{sequential_hcl}}. 
#'
#' 
#' If both a valid palette name and palette parameters are provided then the provided palette parameters overwrite the parameters in the
#' named palette. This enables easy customization of named palettes.
#' 
#' Compared to \code{\link{sequential_hcl}} the ordering of the colors in the sequential ggplot2 scale
#' are reversed by default (i.e., \code{rev = TRUE}) to be more consistent with ggplot2's own scales such as
#' \code{\link[ggplot2]{scale_color_brewer}}. For most named palettes this leads to darker and more
#' colorful colors for larger values on the scale. This is typically the better default on light/white
#' backgrounds.
#'
#' @param c1 Beginning chroma value.
#' @param c2 Ending chroma value.
#' @param cmax Maximum chroma value.
#' @param l1 Beginning luminance value.
#' @param l2 Ending luminance value.
#' @param h1 Beginning hue value.
#' @param h2 Ending hue value. If set to \code{NA}, generates a single-hue scale.
#' @param p1 Control parameter determining how chroma should vary (1 = linear, 2 = quadratic, etc.).
#' @param p2 Control parameter determining how luminance should vary (1 = linear, 2 = quadratic, etc.).
#' @param alpha Numeric vector of values in the range \code{[0, 1]} for alpha transparency channel (0 means transparent and 1 means opaque).
#' @param rev If \code{TRUE} (default), reverses the order of the colors in the color scale (compared to \code{\link{sequential_hcl}}).
#' @param palette The name of the palette to be used. Run \code{hcl_palettes(type = "sequential")} for available options.
#' @param nmax Maximum number of different colors the palette should contain. If not provided, is calculated automatically
#'  from the data.
#' @param order Numeric vector listing the order in which the colors should be used. Default is \code{1:nmax}.
#' @param aesthetics The ggplot2 aesthetics to which this scale should be applied.
#' @param ... common discrete scale parameters: \code{name}, \code{breaks}, \code{labels}, \code{na.value}, \code{limits} and \code{guide}. See
#'  \code{\link[ggplot2]{discrete_scale}} for more details.
