[TUHS] Seeking wisdom from Unix Greybeards

As I find myself starting yet another project that that wants to use 
ANSI control sequences for colorization of text, I find myself -- yet 
again -- wondering if there is a better way to generate the output from 
the code in a way that respects TERMinal capabilites.

Is there a better / different control sequence that I can ~> should use 
for colorizing / stylizing output that will account for the differences 
in capabilities between a VT100 and XTerm?

Can I wrap things that I output so that I don't send color control 
sequences to a TERMinal that doesn't support them?
