    parse_color: recognize "no$foo" to clear the $foo attribute · ff40d185

    You can turn on ANSI text attributes like "reverse" by
    putting "reverse" in your color spec. However, you cannot
    ask to turn reverse off.
    
    For common cases, this does not matter. You would turn on
    "reverse" at the start of a colored section, and then clear
    all attributes with a "reset". However, you may wish to turn
    on some attributes, then selectively disable others. For
    example:
    
      git log --format="%C(bold ul yellow)%h%C(noul) %s"
    
    underlines just the hash, but without the need to re-specify
    the rest of the attributes. This can also help third-party
    programs, like contrib/diff-highlight, that want to turn
    some attribute on/off without disrupting existing coloring.
    
    Note that some attribute specifications are probably
    nonsensical (e.g., "bold nobold"). We do not bother to flag
    such constructs, and instead let the terminal sort it out.
