Writing diagnostics to stdout sounds very wrong, I wouldn't want
any program to do that.  What for?

Well, some programs write informative output to stdout.
A good example would be the address a DHCP client has acquired.
While we may want each part of the DHCP setup to goto stdout, do we want all of it to? We do want it logged for sure.
