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?
