        Actually, what you had first will work just fine.  Of course,
since the prompt doesn't go through the normal display like act,
send_to_char, and everything else, in the function "make_prompt" (at
least, thats what it is over here) you might want to add the "parse_color"
function in the correct places.

        Note: this is not as particularly as easy as it sounds.  As a
matter of fact, it took me about 2 days of on-off work (well, kinda work..
okay.. total time of like 4 hours..) to get it to work without crashing,
and then in with the custom prompt-type code.
