I must admit I was wrong. I thought the editor was configurable. I 
suppose it is, in a way. But reminiscent of the way DOS programs looked. 
It is so long since I looked at the settings I was remembering how I 
felt about them, then.
So I support your feature request.
But, if memory serves me well. There is no one to do it. The Pov team 
are all working on other things and your request is cosmetic.
So unless you can hack the editor code. The only other thing to do is 
keep nagging until one of them gets sick enough of it to add a custom 
colour into the list. That's how it was done in days of yore. ;)
