Heh, funny, I was just implementing the exact same idea except

everything else to stdout (as it currently is). Then, anyone (like me)
who wants the aliases into a text file could redirect stderr ONLY into a
Either patch, imho, is an excellent solution to the problem.
Which one would people prefer? (In my experience, newbies know how to
redirect stdout with '>' but not stderr with '2>' in bash, so perhaps
Gary's patch is the one to use?)
