OK, I've updated the patch.

Two other ideas for pprint:

The arguments for the PrettyPrinter constructor could
be exposed in pprint() and pformat():
import pprint
print.pprint(foo, indent=3, width=40)

The indent argument could be a string, which is used for indenting,
so indent=" " would be the same as indent=1, indent="   " would
be like indent=3, and we could use something like indent="\t"
or even indent="\033[1;30m...\033[0m".
