Sure, and 'j' can be highlighted in red, but this is a job for a front-end or a custom display hook, not core python.  You may want to take a look at ipython.

There was a historical reason for that, but I don't remember it now.  You may find the answer in the tracker, svn log, or python-dev archives.

It may not have been obvious, but most of the comments here including mine were not serious even when they did not include smileys.  Nothing will happen here.  Time to move on.
