It's probably not such a great idea to put into the greeting.  The
reason is because at that point the MUD does not know the color setting
of the player yet (heck it doesn't even know who the player is at all).
One reason for allowing players to turn colors off is because their
clients may not support ANSI ESC color sequences (which is what
CircleMUD uses to send color codes to the client).  If this is the case
then they are likely to see strange characters on thier screen where the
color sequences would normally be.
