gnu CPIO

The gnu version of CPIO appears to send all output to stderr.  Take for
instance a need to have the list of files copied and any errors
separated as should be produced by the following:

find . -print | cpio -oacB -O /dev/std0 1>/tmp/filelist 2>/tmp/cpio.err

The result is that all output is directed to /tmp/cpio.err.  Stdout
should have been directed to /tmp/filelist while stderr should have been
directed to /tmp/cpio.err.   Note that tar works this way.

Thank you,
Clark Cooper
