Sage prompt in color

It is possible to activate colors for sage prompts in the terminal which is done by editing the file


As said by W. Stein on sage-devel :
"It has numerous color options, which are off by default since it is not possible to tell if the user's terminal has a white or black background, and any choice of colors looks like crap if you guess wrong about the background color."
Since the background of my terminal is light, my settings are :
# keep uncommented only the one you want:
#colors Linux
colors LightBG
#colors NoColor
