Syntax highlighting broken.

I understand the desire to move to a newer and possibly better syntax 
highlighting tool like that python script, but since that requires 
python version 3, it is not possible to use on a RHEL5/6 server, which 
is a show-stopper for us. RHEL7 will probably have it, but we need to 
use the current Enterprise OSes here and RHEL7 probably won't be out for 
close to another year.
