Coloured output from our Python tests

To make debugging the output of Subversion tests more of a pleasure, I use the "Generic Colourizer" utility "grc" , with a simple configuration .
The result is that I can run Subversion tests like this:
$ grc .../merge_tests.py ...
and see nicely coloured output as shown in the attached screen shot .
My config file is designed for light text on a dark background.
There is an alternative usage of GRC which works better in some scenarios such as colouring the output from a pipeline:
$ .../merge_tests.py ... | ... | grcatconf.svn_py_tests
 Attached files to be installed as '/usr/share/grc/conf.svn_py_tests', and '/etc/grc.conf' (the first three lines are the significant ones), at least these are the locations for Ubuntu 11.10.
