Hi all  I thought it would be cool to have color printing like
1> io:format("\033[31m Hello \033[0m~n").
 Hello
ok
(that would be in color if this wasn't plain text ^_^.  However this
is currently escaped over the shell and ssh.  Also included in this
patch is clear support for the shell.  typing ^L clears the screen as
does io:clear() or l().  Hope this helps

PS sorry for cross post.  I was just hoping for more feedback.  Now to
go implement .erlang-history....
