 Wow, that's a really ancient version of OSX -- does it even support color?
 You should know that the NumPy team is completely addicted to psychedelic
 colors, so this might be the start of a long and drawn out battle.  Have
 you seen the length of the threads on the mailing list these days?  It's
 not pretty.  I suggest you write a Numpy Enhancement Proposal at


 I have been struggling for ages to configure my terminal so I can see
 those colors, so any advice would much appreciated.

 I'm marking this as a definite blocker for NumPy 1.2.
