Thanks for the suggestion.

I felt it necessary to mention that --color=test works ONLY with the msgcat programs, not with the other programs. So I added a bit more text:

Currently, the `msgcat --color=test' command is mentioned in the documentation for the TERM environment variable:


However, it is not documented in the options for `msgcat --color'


I have attached a patch that briefly documents the behavior.
