Subject: [boost] [test] new feature - colored output

I've implemented a change in regular human readable log and report
outputs. You now have an ability to tell the unit test framework to
produce colored output. New boolean runtime parameter is added:
Environment variable: BOOST_TEST_COLOR_OUTPUT
Command-line long: --color_output
Command-line short: -x.

By default the feature is disabled.

Any comments are appreciated. Specifically: how does this feature works
in different environments and if there is a way to make MS compiler to
work properly (gcc on windows works fine in Windows shell, while msvc
build does not)
