Axel wrote to the list to point out that this method, which was removed in #251, is used by a lot of custom steps. The discussion is whether to leave it undefined (forcing custom step authors to recode their steps on upgrade) or just make it a logging no-op (which may lead to some "hey, setColor doesn't work anymore!" bugs).

I think that most steps just do what used to be required and setColor to what is now set via the classes, so it will probably not even look different.

I'm not sure if a noop or a log.msg() is better, I wonder how many folks are actually going to read through the log as long as it doesn't error.

I'm not sure when calling into setColor was actually required, or whether that being all over the place is just copy'n'paste.
