rm: """I personally would probably just never enable colors.
Or at least, I'd rather have no color then what's there.
I find it hard to read."""

Suggest a BUNYAN_NO_COLOR env var.... or eventually a ~/.bunyanrc file support. But the envvar would be quicker to support.

Me: """originally the idea was that all the "extra" keys were bonus secondary data. However, really, the "extra" fields are becoming the meat. I.e. it argues for having the extra bits stand out more and the boilerplate, if anything, be the less obvious gray."""

If we want an env var, an idea that finally came to mind was BUNYAN_COLORBLIND. If I'm going to be on a tty colors rampage, might as well at least be willing to poke fun at myself (plus I think I might remember that).

I was thinking BUNYAN_NO_COLOR to mirror the 'bunyan --no-color' option name.
