Just so I get this right .. you are building a patch for Windows
(where tput isnt present), yet you cannot or do not test on Windows?
Seems like someone else that cares about this should do this, like,
someone that can actually test.

Oh, and if i start seeing weird broken ANSI escape codes in my
terminal, I will revert. :p
