The elflord colorscheme has bright colors, so it is easy to read, the perl_* lets are very imporant if you're serious about Perl programming:
want_scope_in_variables: give package names an other color
extended_vars: parse things like $foo{ split //, $var } for better clarity
include_pod: recognise pod and use special colors for it.

Note: It's not perl_include_POD, as all documentation says. A lot of people read the documentation, and don't have this working, so use lowercase "pod".
