Yes, I know about that and if I even delete an extra empty line from 
/etc/issue.net to save on network traffic (though nowadays it's 
irrelevant as instead of telnet everyone uses ssh), I certainly don't do 
tex logging to the terminal. My Makefiles are written to log everything to 
disk and invoke pdflatex (or latex, depending on config options) with 
-halt-on-error to avoid the need for terminal interaction.

Kind regards
