As was mentioned earlier, you want to use CML/Ctext if anything at
all.  Imho you dont want to do it--that should be done by the client.
You can add triggers to nearly any decent mud client for it to
'colorize' things in certain ways.  This is advantageous because it
moves the processing to the client's CPU, instead of the server's.

Pass the 'flags' variable to .debug().  It probably contains what you
are interested in.  Specifically, you are probably interested in the
value of flags['actor].  But there are a few others of interest.
