  $ mysqldump -p -d > current.sql

Hmmm, that didn't prompt me for my password.  And it finished very
quickly!  Wonder what it did.  Let's look in current.sql:

  $ cat current.sql
  Usage: mysqldump [OPTIONS] database [tables]
  OR     mysqldump [OPTIONS] --databases [OPTIONS] DB1 [DB2 DB3...]
  OR     mysqldump [OPTIONS] --all-databases [OPTIONS]
  For more options, use mysqldump --help

Nooooooooo!

The whole purpose of having standard error is that it's the _standard_
place for _errors_ to go.  Sending error message to standard output is
just hateful.
