Uh, I'm not posting the entire patch (which I'm not even sure is the
same one) but it creates a file color.c which has the functions
is_colour(), proc_color().  The one I'm talking about, I think, was the
easycolor patch.

If it isn't, then I can't be specific, but at the end of the
make_prompt() function, you could just add something like:

+  prompt = function_that_processes_color(prompt, ...whatever other params it takes);

(this is a guess, YMMV).
