While this might (underline "might" ;-) be an interesting feature, it
is orthogonal to the issue under question -- that is, the need to retain
the ability to automatically determine whether the output is going to a
tty or a "log file" (that is, any file that is not a tty).

And notice that, currently, such a post-run colorization is easy to obtain,
if you are only interested in having it working 99% of the time: just color
a leading "PASS:" string in green, a leading "FAIL:" in red, e leading
"SKIP:" in blue, etc.
