Again, it is. If the new default is really harmful for too many people,
then documentations will have to mention how to fix it.

And really, I do not forsee any newbie-oriented starting with "here's
how to disable colors in case you need it", because of the reasons
mentionned in the message.

Not really. Neither Documentation/gittutorial.txt nor
Documentation/user-manual.txt mention colors. Pro Git mentions it, but
more as a possibility than as a recommandation. This is the
recommandation of the rest of the world, not "ours".

It's not "either we update the docs or we update the code", it's "follow
what the rest of the world is doing", and "rest of the world" has to
imply a notion of majority (not all tutorials talk about color.ui).
