I made some slight cosmetic cleanups to the text.
Always put DWARF in all caps in all documentary text.
There's usually no need for NEWS items for bug fixes.
Ulrich just added his --color support but didn't add any NEWS items (nor
comment on this mailing list). It seems dubious to me that --color=always
be the default. I hate that crap altogether myself, but --color=auto seems
like a safe default to keep tools script-friendly. (Not that anyone's
existing scripts are really using eu-nm or eu-objdump, but IMHO at least
eu-nm should endeavor to be compatible with scripting uses of binutils nm.)
