Hi Earnestly,

I'm sitting here hoping for less colour abuse.  It would be nice if all

To keep people like you happy, maybe the 'Color' variable in
"/etc/pacman.conf" should be ternary instead of binary (as follows):

   - Color = 0 (for no colour at all)
   - Color = 1 (for coloured warnings and errors only)
   - Color = 2 (for full colourisation)

Point is, please don't include me in your secret users.

I wasn't planning to, Chief.  That's why I wrote "many" (as opposed to
"all") users.  Nonetheless, thanks for your opinion; I can't fathom why
anyone would want it like that, but thanks anyway :-).

Regards, Xavion.
