I'm not sure if it is a good policy that the base library jumps to talk
directly to the user (/stderr) ... because it's a very inflexible /
uncustomizable behaviour - the library should instead allow the program to
perform/provide its own checks / error routines, which might depend a lot
on the situation - a NSLog might be totally inappropriate.

NSString +stringWithContentsOfFile should return nil if the file can't be
opened ... it is up to the caller to decide what to do in that case, if
this is perfectly acceptable or it is a major error, if it needs to be
logged to stdout / stderr / a file / displayed in an alert panel /
whatever, or if it can be ignored (as in the case of NSSavePanel).
