BTW, I started thinking about this when trying to add the color diff
support into the hgshelve extension: "should the [mq] extension be
requesting for the color support, instead of color extension forcing
it into the [mq] extensions?"

To me the former more 'natural', and it would also make it easier to
enable color support for third-party extensions like hgshelve. Though
the color extension will need to provide the public interface to
support that.

Just some thoughts.
