Ahh, that's right, I forgot about vim. I remember seeing vim in color over a
terminal, and if I recall correctly, it can write colored source to HTML
too... Unfortunately, I have such a hard time with vi - I feel like I have
to RTFM every time I use it again. ;)

Found some information about text terminal colors for emacs here:

Are there any others? What about Fte, I wonder... is that editor/IDE still
being actively maintained? According to their website it supports Python
color hilighting, but I'm not sure if the s-lang version does. I'll check
into it.
