[plt-scheme] test-coverage and colorblindness

Another option is to add another feature to the text, in addition to color.
For example, untested code could be red *and* bold.

This is something that I've been pushing with my upper-level programming
class. Never indicate an important UI distinction with *only* color. In my
case, this really hit home when the CRT monitor I was using had its red gun
go out. :-)
