[pacman-dev] Please make the colourised output exactly like that of "pacman-color"

I've discovered that the patch I submitted earlier today fails if the
string or list is empty.  I've modified the code to prevent this, but will
wait until those other patches you mentioned are merged before resubmitting

The other thing I've been thinking is that perhaps it's better to use the
yellow text for the "Replaces" array.  This is kind of like a warning,
while having the "Conflicts With" array in red symbolises something
stronger (i.e. like an error).

If the "Description" is coloured yellow in the information output, it
probably should look the same in the search output as well.  I'm thinking
you guys might not want to go down that path, which strengthens the case
for using yellow in "Replaces" instead.
