Unfortunately, this is not possible. There is no such thing as a  
"first tag". We do not support any kind of explicit/user-controlled  
tag ordering. In addition there are huge performance implications for  
color<->tag mapping and fetching all tags for all visible events on  
each view load. There is a ticket on the bug tracker in Kronolith's  
queue about this as well.I can't remember if it is  
open/stalled/rejected though at the moment.

If your users are using a small enough number of categories that  
applying colors to them makes sense, they can consider creating  
separate calendars for each category - calendars can be colored.

Nope. Nothing official, and nothing I've seen floating around either.
