Asked for no extraneous info: Check
Number of lines of extraneous info I never cared about but got: 3 

Is there a way to make that stuff go away for real, its just clutter, and clutter that gets in your way if you attempt running 10 of them concurrently.

I don't need to be told "everything is fine, so here's three lines of cruft".

I only need to be told "hey, stuff is broken" when it is.
