Do you use syntax highlighting... in your diff tool? In your merge tool / conflict resolver? In your grep tool? In your print-outs? In your code reviews? In your e-mail? In your 'blame' tool? In your repo browser? etc.
And how do you manage to understand the example code in the POD if the colors aren't right?
Of course, even when you are in a context where you can have your color hints crutch, POD still gets in the way of reading code.
As a side note, IIRC, you use emacs.
