Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 15.04 dev with dpkg 1.17.23ubuntu1 and maybe the log on upgrading a package could be colored for better readability. Here is an example from an apt log:

Preparing to unpack .../libgudev-1.0-0_1%3a218-5ubuntu2_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking libgudev-1.0-0:amd64 (1:218-5ubuntu2) over (1:218-3ubuntu4) ...

For example the old version could be colored red while the new version could be colored green and the name of the package could be bold. Especially if multiple packages are getting upgraded like on apt this would make the log easier to read if the important informations are highlighted.

affects: apt (Ubuntu) → dpkg (Ubuntu)
