Well, it *is* useful. It is the lowest common denominator that is guaranteed 
to work everywhere (even if not readily visible in GUI-apps, but proper 
defaults save us bug reports). In a cli-tool, it's the "natural" way of 
handling messages.

Besides that I'm still of the opinion that all messages should go to stderr by 
default, probably making it configurable.
