asciitool.py - semi-automated ASCII removal

I have been working on a tool to semi-automate this process. I have attached an

suggestion, for the time being I will host it here:

commit access). The only preq is colorama:

Currently the tool detects ASCII art in addition to some (but not all)

I say the tool is semi-automated because while it will make a suggestion

suggestion or the original comment. It provides 5 lines of context before and
after, like git diff.

I'd be interested in getting some feedback regarding this, whether it's bug
reports, suggested features, or even just "why bother?"
