Pod::Text::Color is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output
text using ANSI color escape sequences. Apart from the color, it in all
ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available
Term::ANSIColor is used to get colors and therefore must be installed to use
This is just a basic proof of concept. It should be seriously expanded to
support configurable coloration via options passed to the constructor, and
pod2text should be taught about those.
