I redirect standard out to /dev/null in my cron jobs. s3cmd sends errors to standard error, so I only get emails on error.

The --no-progress option is great, but when running s3cmd from a cron
job, it would be great if it had a quiet mode, where absolutely no
output is generated, unless there's an error.

On many systems, a cron job does not generate an email to the owner if
the command does not produce any output. This way, if the command is
silent unless there's a problem, the cron job also will be quiet as long
as everything is okay.

This helps a lot with keeping the email volume down.
