I'm going to wave my hands in the general direction of PerlIO. Maybe
there's some way it can cause the stuff coming from STDOUT and STDERR be
labeled as such, perhaps with a prefix on each line. I know PerlIO is a 5.8
thing so it might require saying that STDOUT/ERR synchronization will only
happen for 5.8 and everyone else has to live with the desync.
