ix_0_39 has colored cables:   http://whats-your.name/pd/gui/q.PNG

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/pure-data co pd/
cd pd/src && wget http://whats-your.name/pd/ix039.patch && patch -p0 < ix039.patch

to set colors, either edit the top of pd.tk in the ::pdtheme section, or while its running, eg:
set ::pdtheme::object greeen , then refresh the window (minimizing/unminimizing will do.)

seen that in a number of VST plugins like MOOG/ARP simulations..you could do it in pd, but it would be a lot of work , id want to wait until the GUI wasnt so embedded in the C..you could proably get it looking similar to that with a bit of work in TkZinc..
