As my primary workstation, I use a mac running OS X 10.5. I spend much of the day ssh'd into remote systems and am working on grokking vim. One of the things I want to do is experiment with different colour schemes.
The problem I encounter is that my Terminal.app settings override the colours specified in the vim colour scheme. A very simple example is the background colour. If I pick, say, the 'desert' colour scheme in vim on the remote server the background should be black. If I then use Terminal preferences to set my background colour to an intense orange, my Terminal preference wins.
I want my Terminal preferences to win for local shells, but I want anything I specify on remote systems to win on them. Is that possible?
