and so, what if my intent is to show error stack trace on transcript?

in headless mode i would prefer to log everything to some default
logging facility.. guess which one? yes, it is Transcript.

But then also i may want to use different stream for transcript in
headless mode (to redirect output to stdout or file), but that won't
require changing the error logging,
which could simply output everything to Transcript.
