Though bear in mind that this a very personal preference
that is not at all universally shared. I, for one, find great
difficulty in reading "colorized" or "font-enhanced" source
code. It's terribly distracting and pulls my eyes away from
the important stuff. Similarly, "unset LS_COLORS" is the very
first thing I add to my "~/.bashrc" on any new Linux login I get.
