There are at least two of us.  One of the reasons I have it off is the 
same as what you noted; personally I find it more distracting than

Also performance: I do most of my scripting on a 3 GHz Haswell, and even 
with colorization off it struggles to keep up with even my own modest 
typing speed.

Fortunately opportunities to optimize the SE are being investigated:
