I was once again [0] looking for some solution to automatic syntax
highlighting (or input/output colouring) in a bare bones R terminal
and I've stumbled on both Pygments and this thread. Current Pygemnts
fancies [1] support for both S and R.

Is anyone aware of any progress in this direction? Perhaps some R
interface to Pygments? Regards
