Is there any interest in having BB emit its warning and error messages in color? It's just a matter of writing ANSI color codes on modern
*nix shells, but even in Windows cmd.exe it's possible. I think it would be very helpful for quickly discriminating between mundane build
text, error/warning messages, and in the case of failed actions, the body of the action that failed.

For Windows, it requires a few system calls:

Should output.c/h be split out by nt/unix like path and exec are?
