Can you give some pointer to that?

Willing yes, capable not.  Lacking time and skill.  Skill can still improve,
but time.... :-/

Yes, I think so.  But as said on IRC, I don't think the interface has to be
a color command.  As long as we can display something that is not uglier
than "color cyan/blue white/blue" (and we don't have to wait ages untill the
new fancy menu is ready), that's ok.
