Colorize gpg terminal output

Dear List,

what about adding colors to the output of gpg?
For example color keys/lines green that have new signatures or other changes, 
when refreshing. And color keys red, that just got revoked since last refresh.

This would improve the output information and make it easier for humans to 
read it. By now, when calling "gpg --refresh-keys" for instance, you have to 
read line by line for the "not changed" appendix which isn't aligned very well 
due to the different width of names. Since the output could be quiet a lot, I 
think it would be a good idea to add an (optional) color option, just like 
this is solved in git.

I would be very happy to see this in a future version of gpg.
If there already is such a thing, please ignore the above and give me a hint.

Best regards
