But guess what, the error messages are eaten.  I've had times where errors
were not redirected into the log so you have phantom errors. Plus I've had
erroneous 'OK' conditions on things that were actually broken (eg missing
ethernet interfaces).

The current way spews the error all over, but it's plainly obvious what's
broken and why.
