Some management commands already use colorization to improve usability of output - e.g., validation errors are in red; SQL is pretty-printed in color. #7679 proposes adding yet more color.
However, colored output can pose problems for anyone with color blindness or other vision problems.
The simple choice of colors can also be problematic - red/blue on black is hard to read; yellow on white is also hard to read.
We should provide a way to customize the colors that are used, or disable the use of color entirely.
