I wouldn't expect that a function that ignores the output directs it
to a temporary file.  I think that should be clearly stated on the
documentation, as this may be undesirable.  I don't know if there is a
better way of solving this problem, though.

(Note, however, that on Unix systems you could probably direct the
output to /dev/null.)
