Zahari Dim added the comment: Considering Python is used often to interact with lower level languages, it seems interesting to have the ability to control the "real" standard output and error that those languages use. Note that redirecting to /dev/null is only one possible application of this feature. Others would be for example linking the stout to the logging module.
Specifically regarding redirecting to /dev/null, in my experience this would be fairly useful In scientific software where low level code tends to be used on scientific merits rather than on how much control it has over verbosity.
