Houses and Konsole tab colors

Well, I put an offer on a house today... rather nervous. I expect a counter-offer tomorrow; hopefully by Monday I should know..

In KDE3.5, you will be able to set Konsole's tab text color via the tab menu. I'm thinking about adding the ability to change the color via an ESC code.
I'm not sure if I should mimic the ESC[0;#m and/or create a new code say ESC[0;RRGGBBy. It is rather easy to code.

Tried to create a new branch of konsole today. I couldn't figure out how to do it in svn. Hopefully someone will repond to my post on kde-devel.


why does the color need to be set manually, instead of just using the color from the color scheme? it's a pain having to set the colors for tons of applications seperately in addition to changing it in kcontrol... (I don't really have a problem with the *ability* to set it seperately, but if it could just use the color scheme by default it'd be a great convenience)
thanks for your work on konsole, it really is an awesome app :)

At 1st glance, the 'title' of it, gives the impression of the 'tabs themself' going to come in different colours - not the 'session name'...

After thinking about it, why not make the 'tabs themself' also come in different collours, aswell as being able to change the colour of the 'session name'? :-)

    /* like either pressing some keyboard-shortcut (konfigurable in the said config... ) to reveal a color-menu... or when the users right-clicks on the 'tab' (you know, the "detach.., rename.., monitor.., montior.., Send.., Swetch.., close.."-menu) to sport a color-sub-menu too */

Here's how:

$ svn cp protocol:// protocol://

(where protocol is https or svn+ssh)

After that, you can switch your normal code to the branch.
