Two comments: * on Unix it is possible to detect whether your terminal supports color: curses.tigetnum('colors') returns 8 in gnome-terminal and -1 in emacs's dumb terminal). zope.testing.testrunner already uses curses.tigetnum() to detect the terminal width with graceful fallbacks on Win32 and other crippled platforms that don't have 'curses'. Making --auto-color do the Right Thing should be easy. https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope.testing/+bug/306476 * it's a rather strong personal preference whether people want colors or not; enabling them by default is not a good decision, having a global config file in $HOME for that setting would be a good choice. https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope.testing/+bug/306478 Marius Gedminas -- Attempts to stick to simple on-or-off options lead to monsters like gcc, which now has so many flags that programmers are using genetic algorithms to explore them. -- http://www.third-bit.com/~gvwilson/xmlprog.html
