Running rigging in colors?

I have used a number of color coding schemes over the year. One thing to avoid is using black line for halyards, outhauls and other lines that need to be marked to repeat settings. That said I used black for my main halyard becuase I typically whip and stitch the tension index mark and reef marks on anyway so that I can feel them at night or in the rain. I avoid using port and starboard color differenciation except for spinnaker sheets.
