Consider supporting clicolors_control #942

I pushed up this crate because I'm a bit tired of having to configure many different things for CLI color support. What do you think of having something like this?

The idea is that there is a standardized crate that figures out if ANSI colors are support to be used. Now that Windows 10 has ANSI color support (which that crate turns on) it seems like that might be a sensible path forward.

Awesome, I like it! Yeah, I really want to rework the color control (see #836). I've looked briefly at termcolor but I haven't had much time this year due to my paid job. Since I haven't yet put a ton of research into either yet, do you happen to know how this compares to termcolor? Or are they doing completely different things?

@kbknapp It seems like clicolors_control is something termcolor might want to use. For example, termcolor's interface lets you specify a preference for colors, and then it will take over from there. It could use clicolors_control to make its choice smarter. In particular, it looks like the key thing it could benefit from is automatic ANSI color support in Windows 10.
