[Bug-wget] Output no longer going to stderr

Hi guys,
I recently upgraded wget to 1.19.1, but have discovered that it has
broken some of my scripts.

These are scripts that expect output on stderr. For example, have
"wget ... 2> logfile" or "wget ..... 2>&1 | .... "

Instead, I just get text message "Redirecting output to ‘wget-log.1’",
and get a logfile at ~/wget-log.1

Is there a good reason for this change?

If not, I would like the old behaviour back please.

I see someone else has posted about this:
