What I was trying to say, I think it would confuse an user who did a make and
saw an error and then did another make but this time piped to tee or to an
output file.  And looked at the output file and it was different than what was
on the tty before.

This is why I think we should not worry about the IDEs and just have them
handle those cases just as we handle the case of emitting more debugging info
and such.
