I call it an "unnecessary burden" and don't like the gotchas. There is a
perfectly reasonable alternative that doesn't require the programmer to
compensate and track the different output mechanisms. I say, let the
programmer choose the appropriate way to do output, and just make it work
for them.

If we want it in before beta, then I can build the patch. The ap_r* code
already works fine, so we certainly aren't gaining functionality for the
beta. It should be changed in the long run, though.
