at the beginning, under FreeBSD (or any other OS without native lib, like 
Solaris or AIX), JAnsi simply made the Maven run blow up: our patch was 
integrated [3]

Now, on an Unix without native lib, not having a native lib does not make ANSI 
color failure: it just doesn't give isatty() function to try to detect stdout 
redirection, which even when available does not detect well when redirection 
are used.

Yes, from a pure logical perspective, have more native libs would be a plus. 
But this is not so critical.
Yes, JAnsi maintainers don't apply every PR immediately and it's sometime hard 
to get their attention: hey, that reminds me some recent complaints on our ML.

JAnsi works well currently for Maven and for a lot of others: if you find a 
better alternative, don't hesitate to point us to it.
