5 Part of the idea behind using standardised output functions was that
6 they could be replaced. The thought was, rather than trying to parse
7 console-centric output, you'd swap in a different implementation of the
8 output functions that fed to, say, ncurses or a GUI. Then you'd swap
9 the driver logic with something that calls multiple tasks in order
10 rather than merely doing one thing and then exiting (there's proper
11 environment isolation to allow that).
13 Might be easier to do things that way...
