I assume you are developing on Windows.  What error messages are you 
talking about?  I'd assumed that all debug output (tools/debug.hxx 
DBG_ASSERT et al; osl/diagnose.h OSL_ASSERT et al; sal/log.hxx SAL_WARN 
et al) by now goes to stderr on all platforms (where on Windows the 
stderr output is at least visible when running soffice from a Cygwin shell).

Is that still relevant with the .ui driven dialogs?

No, I was mostly interested in removing the underlying functionality.
