Its 2016 isnt it?

Old habits die hard but even most terminal text editors have syntax highlighting these days*. I'd be a bit worried if someone was using nano to develop kernel code until I knew they could handle it.

* I was doing some ARM assembler on a pi zero the other day and even that had colour 'syntax' highlighting!
