Maybe people ask you why because it seems stupid to them that you waste
your time repeatedly answering a question that comes across the list
fairly frequently (I've seen it four or five times in the last two or
three months I've been on the list) instead of implementing the trivial
amount of code it would take to grant the request. Unless there is some
*technical* reason why you do not capture the output, I would think you
of all people would take the 20 minutes and implement it just to stop
the questions/requests about it. I'm sure you've wasted more time than
that answering "stupid" questions or replying to "stupid" suggestions
like mine already on the matter.
But as I said originally, I don't really care either way. However, if
you are going to continue to be obstinate about not implementing it, at
least have enough courtesy to put a reason in the FAQ, even if it's
something like, "I don't want to implement it and that's final." Maybe
it will discourage other people from making the same mistake of trying
to be helpful that I did.
