Well stop it. You're cluttering up your eclass with pointless junk under the mistaken impression that more complicated eclasses are better. If you have a desperate need for a coloured output that isn't doable using the existing e* functions, make your case for either a new EAPI or for a special, dedicated eclass. Besides, if you're not communicating anything for users, why have it there? -- Ciaran McCreesh
