Why not have HTBlackHole.c/h and HTErrorStream.c/h ? I just thought that if
you ever write more utility streams and keep putting them in one file it would
get confusing.

Maybe I'm just too used C++ where I tend to keep all the different classes in
different files... *sigh* you know what they say about old dogs and new
tricks (though I'm not an old dog and I suspect that putting everything in
one file is not exactly a new trick!)
