I just downloaded ubuntu 12.04 lts, opened the default terminal, set my
TERM to "xterm-256color", obtained ta 7.0 alpha, and ran the curses
version on a source file. Comments show up and I can read them. Granted
they are a slightly darker grey than the terminal background, but that was
what I was expecting.
