Recoloring code as you type in a terminal window requires a more sophisticated 
implementation using curses or something similar. It's typically much easier for 
GUIs to do this. Now that the core has been refactored to make implementing GUI 
frontends easier, it should be easier to make a curses frontend that recolors as 
you type, too.
