Agreed. I was mostly thinking of situations where we don't have
a terminal (or we have a dumb one). I like the idea of doing this
nicely on 99% of the cases with a setting to control the output:
If we have a capable terminal, then use colors/boldness.
If not, then revert to using the arrow.
The setting could be a general "auto/yes/no" setting for using
terminal capabilities in CLI display.
That being said, saving 3 or 4 characters through the use of font
characteristics may since too little a gain for the extra code?
I really like the idea of not printing the name of the function
in the disassembly output, though. I've always had to cut it out
when I email portions of a GDB session that includes a disass.
