 I just ran setup.py on my Mac running OSX 2.4. My poor eyes! Please don't
 use yellow text in the output of setup.py.  On my Mac and Linux computers,
 the default background for a terminal is white.  Yellow text on a white
 background results in very low contrast and is hard to read.  Unless you
 can make setup.py smart enough to detect the background color of the
 terminal, please don't mess with colored text.
