change in wget logfile behavior

Recently, I guess since wget was upgraded to 1.19, whenever I run wget I get a
bonus message on the console:

  Redirecting output to ‘wget-log’.

And sure enough, wget creates the file ~/wget-log, which is usually empty.

This behavior is annoying, and new. It can be worked around by putting 

logfile = /dev/stderr

in /etc/wgetrc.

Eric, I guess you're aware of this change. Would you consider putting the above
into the default /etc/wgetrc, so people don't have to make the chnage separately
on all of their hosts?
