Furthermore, keeping it as a separate macro is essential for
conditionally using the feature with a new enough autoconf, without
penalizing use of older autoconf (as witnessed by your recent patch
submission to libtool[1]).  So if we decide to make it an optional
argument of AT_INIT, that should be an independent patch at a later
date, and we should still keep AT_COLOR_TESTS present.
