I think (ice-9 colorized) is enough for colored-REPL purpose, of course,
with Daniel's 'option-REPL-printer' patch. Besides, it'll provide other
methods of coloring for the users.

But the opinion to patch to 'pretty-print' also has a reason: if not,
we'll keep another version of 'list/vector/array' printers. And the
output indent may be different from 'pretty-print'. Some guys may think
it's interesting, but others maybe not.
