Currently mdtool is extremely verbose.
Unfortunately all output is written to stdout and there is no way to pass a --quiet type of option.
Ideally error messages would be printed to stderr, so one could just do:
mdtool build > /dev/null
and receive just the warning and error output.
This matters for our CI environment, there's no way for us to only get errors and warnings.
This fix would be of great value here at Nival because we do CI for our linux server code via mdtool and it spams output greatly.
I think mdtool is deprecated now in favour of xbuild (soon to be official msbuild).
