Not nice: Color is generally a bad idea, even for non-colorblind people:
you don't know what the foreground and background colors will be on the users'
terminal. Antechamber tries to colorize its help message, and I often find
it unreadable. ls without the --nocolor option has similar problems. If this
is really a problem, consider putting a row of "*" characters before and after
the message.

Of course, <blink> is even worse....
