error and warning messages

I have asked this question before, and I don`t think there is a way to do this. I would also like to catch this debug information. Since taglib is called as a dll it doesn`t work redirecting std::cerr, I have asked several c++ forums. TagLib needs to be modified, for instrance by using a Singleton class to log all messages from the debug() function in taglib (which justs uses std::cerr).

Hello. New taglib user here!
On calls to taglib_file_new, error messages are sent stderr. I want to do two things.

1. Catch the errors in my code and sometimes handle them.2. Prevent taglib from printing messages to stderr.
Are either of these possible, using the c bindings? (And much more specifically, what is taglib_file_is_valid for? It is always returning true...)
