Now that we've adopted a "traffic lights" coloring scheme, yellow is
used for warning messages, so we need to re-color info messages to
something less alarmist.  Blue is a universal color for informational
messages; however we are using that for skipped tests in order to
align with the color schemes of other test suites.  Therefore we use
bold cyan which is also blue-ish, but visually distinct from bold
blue.  This was suggested on the list a while ago and no-one raised
any objections:
