I like Tim's idea. In more detail, it would be either creating a variable


or abusing GST_DEBUG_NO_COLOR by allowing the value


to mean "no color if not tty" (the double negative is unfortunate).

On the other hand, I think I no longer care all that much, because thanks to
Tim I now know of the existence of the -R option. And the other time when it's
annoying is when I'm running within emacs, and there the tty check won't help
anyway. (Yes, I'm sure emacs has a terminal mode that would handle the colors
too. But I'd rather not go to that much trouble.)

See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/page.cgi?id=email.html for more info about why you received
this email, why you can't respond via email, how to stop receiving
emails (or reduce the number you receive), and how to contact someone
if you are having problems with the system.
