Hi Bruno,

I like the idea, but I've never worried about this case on the principle
that if a program is already writing to stderr, it's usually because
it's going to exit nonzero anyway.

I hope you don't mind waiting a few days for feedback.  I'm concentrating
on making a stable coreutils-6.3 release.
