I have to admit that would be rather nifty but... what I was looking for was
more along the lines of a simple question.. (ie.. does the above line show 3
red boxes of varying degree, and having three red boxes printed above).. if
they answer yes.. they default to color ON (complete) otherwise.. they
dont.. I tried this but I kept getting segv'd in several places.. most
notably.. in get_from_q
