If you are saying, by after each token, that

        --format='%(color:blue)%(A)literal string%(B)'

should result in

        <color blue> <value for A> <color reset> "literal string" <value for B>

then I would disagree.  I was suggesting it to instead produce

        <color blue> <value for A> "literal string" <value for B> <color reset>

where the <color reset> always comes when some color is used and we
hit the end of the format string. A bonus point if we can make it so
that we emit the final reset only when the last "%(color:some)" is
not "%(color:reset)", but unconditional "reset if we ever used
color" is fine.
