Last time, we almost managed a unification: tokens like %authordate in
f-e-r correspond to tokens like %ae in pretty-formats; %C(...) is
different in that it doesn't actually output anything, but changes the
color of tokens following it. While I'm not opposed to %(color:...), I
would prefer a color syntax that is different from other-token syntax,
like in pretty-formats.
