A pet peeve of mine is when programmers embed escape sequences into their programs, so that printing them to the screen or certain lineprinters (I remember the LN03... grr...) causes them to be interpreted rather than displayed. I've extracted Knopper's color codes to a separate file that ought to work on all versions of ash and bash. I'll try to get him to use it, but if you think it's a good idea let him know.
