Hmm, I'm not sure I understand. shell-mode already translates most ANSI escapes 
to colorized faces, doesn't it?
For example, in emacs -Q, running M-x shell and typing `env TERM=xterm ls 
--color' gives me properly colored output.

AFAICT, the only thing that's missing is support for the two specific codes (61 
and 62) that `apt' is using. Isn't that right?
