I think a year is plenty of time to agree on the default color scheme
(and yes, the default certainly has to be usable/readable both on black-on-white
and white-on-black terminals), but at least having an auto/never/always
option allows one to choose, we can discuss what will be the default
later on. The default could very well also be never if GCC_COLORS isn't
in environment and auto if it is, or similar.
