Actually, the const is not a problem here.  write_to_output copies the
text from the 1st arg to the output buffer of the descriptor.  All that
you really need to do is copy the string to a new buffer which you can
pass to proc_color.  Since the new buffer won't inherit the const of the
one passed to the function you can mess with it all you want.
