I was playing with coloring the arrays, and it turns out to be quite  
a bit more tricky than the other areas.  So I am going to let it rest  
for a bit.  I might take it up later. I do think it's a good idea  
overall.  I just want to make sure there aren't major problems with  
what I have done so far before doing a big chunk of work.
