Kids these days just don't understand how walking to school and back home uphill both ways through two meters of snow helps build character :-)

I have walked to school uphill both ways through--ok, it was only two feet of snow, but it *was* uphill both ways. God strike me.

... preferable to bolting on another "feature" to zsh that only 0.001% of its users will find valuable. Well it ain't going to happen and that's nothing to cry about, still, I'd ask how hard would it be? Could be a nice little come-on for bashers and I'm quite sure I'd use it, now that I think about it. You don't miss something you've not had, but once you have it who's to say who might not like it? I'm thinking how cool it might be to have different builds on different xterms showing different BG colors, so that it's easier to keep track of which is which. But, yes, it is just a bon-bon.
