I suppose the idea was that one of these lines would be printed to
introduce a new section of output. In the case where there is no output
to be printed within that external item, I agree that the extra message
is is ugly and could be removed.

Does that sound like a good solution to you - that the line is only
printed if there is also some status information printed after it?

Or did you mean that those messages should never be printed, even when
there is some status information printed after them?
