Hi Knut, hi everyone,

regarding the no-color output:

I, too, think it would be nice to have no-color outout (I would like to
use this for CI pipeline logs).

--color=never as a GREPOPTIONS works as expected. However, pass's
cmd_grep prints the colored file name anyways.

More colored output comes from `tree`. tree's output is colored by the
LS_COLORS variable.

I think it would be nice to implement the standard
for pass which means to locally override LS_COLORS, remove any colored
output generated by pass itself and also append --color=never to the

It this is desired I can provide a patch.
