> Currently, the only way to enable/disable color output is to use the batch-mode or log-file options.
> If a user wants colored output but no interactivity (ie: jenkins environment with the ansicolor plugin), there is no CLI option combination to support the use-case.
> I propose to add an option to control output coloring directly.

> --color=enabled <- color output always enabled
> --color=disabled <- color output always disabled
> --color=auto <- current behavior (default)
