For example, I have an Emacs script that prints these messages in the
middle of its run:

  Loading subst-ksc...
  Loading subst-gb2312...
  Loading subst-big5...
  Loading subst-jis...

These are not files I loaded directly.  Some package which is not
under the control of ordinary users is loading them.

It is this kind of message that needs to be silenced.

I hope this helps.


P.S.  I'm not entirely sure why I got CC-ed on this message, but I'm
happy to comment on it!
