I would definitely use this.

Subject: ANSI Color Logger

I have a custom logger that I like using
every now and then when I perform a build 
in non-cron job mode.

This custom logger uses ANSI color codes
to distinguish various message levels -
red for Project.MSG_ERR, of course ;-)

It works on standard XTerms (Mindterm
interface inclusive).  It also works
on Win9x as long as ANSI.SYS is loaded.
It doesn't work on WinNT even with
ANSI.SYS loaded and in mode.

The only use-case is that it is easier/
faster to understand the output messages 

Would it be of interest to you?  If so,
I can package it up (doc it, make it color 
configurable, etc.) and check it in as an 
additional logger.
