Debug/Trace Messages in VS Package Manager Console shouldn't have red background


I'm using a powershell script to obfuscate, sign, pack, and publish my project. I can just type ".\publish.ps1" in the Package Manager Console (from Nuget) inside Visual Studio 2013 to complete the task.

Using LibZ as a packing tool, the log messages always have red background, which usually means error inside the console. I hope there is a way to make it appear like normal console output, or just provide a /quiet argument to hide these non-fatal, no-warning messages.

I have to admit it look ugly.
I use stderr stream for logging as it uses non-buffered output and apparently package manager console uses red background for everything in stderr.
I do not really need that so, yes, I can change it in next release.
