People, this is debugging info. Don't overengineer the feature!

If you don't like the colours, turn them off or modify the code. Use the same 
colours that cmake, colorgcc or unsermake uses and you should be fine.

One more thing: users are not supposed to see the coloured output. Warnings, 
errors and fatal errors should be plain text, uncoloured, in a release build.
