Color New Messages in Msg Log

Is it possible to have new messages in the message log (new since the player's last turn) to be colored something different from the rest of the message log?

Can this be done without a recompile?

I figured out where to do it in PosChengband, but I was wondering if anyone else thought it would be useful to have in the released version of Vanilla.

I find this helps to easily distinguish, since sometimes you can get a flurry of messages in the last turn and you might have missed them in the single-line display. Especially useful if you've got auto-more activated.

Personally I like new messages light blue or red, old messages white. Or, new messages white, old messages grey.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Go for it.
