That argument is really lame.
Should we now go back to VT100 terminals because _some_ Emacs users  
are annoyed that ANSI colors break their shell window display?

They should read about ansi-color-for-comint-mode-on and add-hook.
There are probably other ways to do this.

It is equally annoying when _some_ Emacs users leave lines filled with  
nothing but spaces all over the Zope code base.  Yet, nobody asked for  
a rule that would somehow prevent that.

The Emacs users can easily prevent these spaces by setting
show-trailing-whitespace in python-mode-hook or simply using
delete-trailing-whitespace from time to time.
Setting next-line-add-newlines to nil in the .emacs file is also a  
good idea.

Anyway, why enforce an ancient terminal style on all of us when Emacs  
users could actually set their shell window style?
