Colorizing the terminal window System
While goofing around in the finder today, I found a cool new way to colorize the terminal window. Sure, you can do it through the preferences dialog, but what fun is that?

Instead, pick Show Colors from the Fonts menu. Pick the color you want for a background. Now drag the color swatch to an open (non-text area) of the terminal window. To change the text color, follow the same process, but drop the swatch on some text in the terminal window.

Viola, instant terminal session colors!

Colorizing the terminal window

I realize I'm a couple of years behind on asking this, but I'm curious if there's a way to make these colors "stick". It's the only way I've successfully changed the terminal emacs color scheme thus far (and I greatly prefer the bundled emacs to any of the other releases available that I've tried thus far). Anyway, this is with respect to 10.3; any information (or related hints) would be greatly appreciated!
