Why? IMHO things should go to stderr by default. So it makes perfect sense to
see the output, even if one didn't configure output files in a config file.
I guess this is a mobile platform vs desktop platform discussion. On a mobile
platform the logs are only useful if they go to a file, while on the desktop
the logs are useful also if they go to stderr, to get them in a terminal or in
the session log file.
