Well if there can be no arrangement, then we are at an impasse.

By the above I mean that what you're suggesting sounds like a
workaround, and my workaround sounds like a solution.  Perhaps there's
another way to redirect *Messages* from within Emacs.

You can still redirect your output.  If you don't want that, then
perhaps you need to reconsider why you're using --script.

Like I said if you want to edit files in place, you just open them, edit
them and save them, and STDOUT is incidental; in fact, all you'll get is
STDERR unless your functions have side-effects that call princ.
