In case bogofilter is called with the option

-p the input email + bogosity (et.al) is displayed on
STDOUT.

Applying the arguments

-po file will put the result to file, put STDOUT/STDERR
is empty.

Generally, it would be much better to write all
bogosity information and all 'indirect' results to STDERR.

This would help to redirect the provided information.

    Why would bogosity information belong on STDERR?

    -p mode is meant to tag mail with an additional header for
    later processing by mail filters - using STDERR for bogosity
    etc. would be counter productive.
