As Zippy says: I didn't find any TIPS on how to put COLORS in the

cd /usr/share/doc/bash-doc-2.04/
grep -n -i -e color * */* */*/* /dev/null
article.ps:1051:(ferent colors or in standout mode.)-.25 F 1.532(...
article.txt:827:to print characters in different colors or in standout mode.

I mean there ought to be examples given.  I'm OK with my quick hack

case z-$TERM in z-rxvt) my_color_on="\e[01;35m" my_color_off="\e[00m"
   test `id -u` = 0 && my_color_on="\e[01;45m";;esac
    #don't export the color stuff though

PS1="$my_color_on\$?\W\\$""$my_color_off "

But you might want to throw in some examples from the pros.

Maybe add some level of abstraction so users don't deal with raw
terminal codes...
