Thanks for the patch. Both the initial-tab and the extended colours look like good ideas. Since they are independent of each other, and each need their own review and discussion and testing, they really should be separate patches. If you would be willing to separate them, I'm sure that would increase the chances of one or both of them being accepted.

We probably will need a copyright assignment or disclaimer to cover this work.

        * New "-T" / "--initial-tab" option (both invocations are
          consistent with GNU diff).  This will make sure that the
          first character of a content line is on a tab stop, so that
          the alignment of tabs looks normal.

        * Three other colors when "--color" is in effect, in addition
          to the existing one for matched text.  They are for the file
          names, the numbers (line numbers and octet offsets), and the
          separators (for fields and groups of context lines).

        * New GREP_COLORS='mt=01;31:fn=35:nu=32:se=36' environment
          variable that has priority over and deprecates
          GREP_COLOR='01;31', which is still supported.

        * Updated TeXinfo documentation and man page.
