in thread test output in colour ?

The terminal detection is really annoying. I often pipe colorful output to `less -r'. If tools stopped istty() then my tools would work better. Same goes for ack.

    With ack you can override it, I haven't tried for for prove yet...

    alias ack='ack --color --group' alias plainack='ack --nocolor --nogroup'

    We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!

      Ah yes. I'd forgotten about ~/.ackrc. Silly.
