can't agree more. Its more a workaround to get warnings not turning up red.
Porting it to the log file would mean you have to check the logfile!

Right - if you need to detect an error state via the return code,
currently you have to do this with a wrapper script.

If you don't ever expect any errors, then you can treat stderr
as an output, or just redirect to to /dev/nul - but I don't like that
idea - silent failures are bad.

I regard fixing issue 325 as one of the top priorities in Galaxy, but
in the short term I'd settle for treating any output on stderr OR
a non-zero return code as a failure. i.e. Something like this patch,
even if more work is needed for PBS jobs:
