I don't mind more autoloads, but if you write code that you *know*
will use ansi-color, then the right thing would be to require the
library.  Per default, autoload cookies would only be used for a)
interactive stuff and b) very common stuff.  I don't think ansi-color
is that commen, yet.

As to applying patches right now: With this huge ansi-code.el file I
received, it seems like a major rewrite of ansi-color.el will
be likely to happen.  Any volunteers to take over maintainership?  :)

There is no substitute for experience.
