--- Comment #1 from Chandler Carruth <chandlerc at gmail.com> ---
This is what we used to implement and we had user complaints about it from
actual users who have a terminal emulator that does not support colors and is
not called 'dumb'.

I don't know why you think that libtinfo is a heavy dependency for checking
color support from the terminfo database... It seems impossible to have a
leaner library there.

If the complaint is that some distros bundle libtinfo into their ncurses
library (whatever they decide to call it), that is a complaint for your distro.
