gsl_rng_env_setup

Hi all,
I have a very short question:

why the (otherwise extremely handy) function

const gsl_rng_type * gsl_rng_env_setup (void)

independently decides to print the environment variables and their
values to stderr? This behaviour is, in my humble opinion, a little bit
counter-intuitive... at least, if these messages are really necessary
(but I don't think so) something like

const gsl_rng_type * gsl_rng_env_setup (FILE *where_the_messages_go)

seems to me more adequate.

What do you think?

	Giulio.
