yeah, but even adding apr_file_isatty wouldn't fix this.  Notice that
there are only two APR calls in the test suite currently, apr_initialize
and apr_terminate.  We can't rely on APR working for the test suite that
is supposed to validate APR works.

So, I will look into using isatty() and quietly setting -q.

What else would you like -q to do that it doesn't do already?
