That's not true.  I don't think there are any commands around which
require that stderr be redirected to a script which reads it.

I don't know if that would work or not.  Anyhow, Erik is adding basic
syslog facilities to busybox so we're going to use that (also
reproducing log msgs on tty3 for non-serial-console), which is a
better solution.

We'll still need a generic function that runs system, redirecting
stderr to syslog...
