Hello Bruno.

Sorry, I have read your message after replying to José.

I have no problem with any of this, and it seems to confirm my guesses
from the previous message.

I would still like to support output to FILE * as well, however.  It
should be enough in most cases, particularly for new projects just
experimenting with Jitter: anybody can use fprintf , and get a prototype
working without thinking about any detail.  I would like to avoid making
this common use case more difficult.

I support everyone's freedom of mocking any opinion or belief, no
