      That is exactly what it does, the colours are all really pale (it has
      white background by default), just different enough to be easily
      spotted (of course, this won't work on the console, unless you have
      some type of framebuffer).

      Couldn't you just have a window on the left hand side, 1 column wide,
      with the right things and a macro to link the movement on both windows
      together? (it sounds easier to me)

      That sounds like the way to do it, so I'll have to look into it (that
      is just something I found useful, as it can be used as a kind of local
      versioning system.
