Expected behavior of a *nix system would be to get the
password query on STDERR, so that (for non-interactive
applications) one can send the output of the command to
somewhere else, and not be hanging on a password
request that was never seen by the user at the
terminal. (And also so that output isn't polluted by
the password request, when parsing it via a pipeline.)
