It might if I didn't have so many different installations scattered about and
multiple aliases to create. Better to suffer horri-colors until an Apt config
that works can be found.

In openSUSE we have Zypper as wrapper around rpm more or less the way apt works
with dpkg. Color on/off in Zypper is easy to deal with because of integrated
comments that work so much better than virtually empty config directories, e.g.:

## Whether to use colors
## Valid values: always, never, or autodetect
## Default value: autodetect
 useColors = never

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
