    Description

      Since MNG-7080 introduced this option we mimic grep's behavior, but not the way grep actually does.

      GNU grep: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/grep.git/tree/src/grep.c#n2751
      FreeBSD grep: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-src/blob/781c3b51193e5bd99773439192ca68fdfdd9c330/usr.bin/grep/grep.c#L576-L596

      • Both make the value for --color optional and default to auto
      • They also accept tty, if-tty, yes, force, none, no

      We should support that approach too: Optional value and privately accepting additional values.
