No problem, I'm glad to contribute to Org :)

With this patch I'm attempting to fontify the regions bounded by ANSI
escape sequences (just the color codes) in an Org buffer using the
built-in ansi-color package to do the processing of the sequences.  The
challenge, for me, seems to be making ansi-color aware of Org
element/object boundaries.

I am aware of other ANSI escape codes that would be useful to process
such as the carriage return and which appear, as you mentioned, when
dealing with progress bars in a shell session. Those escape codes are
not being handled at the moment. Although, I do have some experience in
processing them in an Org buffer when developing my Emacs-Jupyter
project. I would be glad to attempt handling these kinds of sequences in
Org proper as well.
