Description Dilian 2018-05-19 09:03:46 UTC
The "usage()" output shall go to stderr, when an weston is called in an invalid way.

`weston --help` is a valid call and the output then shall go to stdout.

The `program --help|less` mechanism -- hence --help output to stdout, works with all other programs I am aware of.
