Count number of characters in an ANSI colored string

This is a color-aware counterpart of base::nchar, which does not do well, since it also counts the ANSI control characters.

Usage
col_nchar(x, ...)
Arguments
x
Character vector, potentially ANSO styled, or a vector to be coarced to character.
...
Additional arguments, passed on to base::nchar after removing ANSI escape sequences.

Numeric vector, the length of the strings in the character vector.
