If it's being run in gate jobs, we need some mechanism to disable
ANSI color there since the embedded escapes tend to make logged
output from it nearly unreadable. If it acts like most _sane_
command-line tools however, it should disable all terminal escapes
if it detects that there's no controlling terminal (for example, if
stdin is null). No idea whether command-line sanity is common to
Javascript programmers, but perhaps someone here is willing to make
it a reality if not.
