Version 3.00 seems to include the needed functionality too and is 
included in perl 5.14 in experimental (in perl-modules package).

I wonder if it is worth the hassle to introduce a newer 
libterm-ansicolor-perl package and drop it a couple of months later[0], 
when 5.14 enters unstable.

    [0] a pure speculation on my side

3.01 (in perl 5.15.2) seems to additionally contain some fixes, that 
seem like a good thing to have[1].

Perl maintainers, what would you recommend?
