[cfe-dev] Print diagnostics with color from API

What colors were you expecting?  There is very little color formatting
within the diagnostic message itself.  From the code, it will bold text
when the level is Error, Fatal, or Warning, but not for Note.  After that,
there is color for the template diffing, but besides that I don't believe
there is any other color.
