To be more specific, $ansi_format handles it by using \A in the 
$ansi_format.do_font() method and then in $ansi_format.format(), when it 
converts to a buffer, it does a bufsub() to translate the \A to the 
correct buffer sequence.

Will your MXP support also be using the ANSI support? Or will it use 
some other means to handle color?
