ANSI escape codes are what you send to a terminal to make it do stuff.
For example, if you print "\e[31;42;1m" to a terminal (where "\e" is ESC,
or ASCII 27) it will make text appear as bold red on a green background.

In httpd-test, this is all hidden within Term::ANSIColor, which gets
called from Apache::TestTrace...
