We now share the same front-end for multiple backends; we want the
diagnostic on by default for two of the backends, since we process more
than one IDL file at a time.  The CORBA backend is the one where we process
only one file at a time.  So in terms of maintenance, we need to change at
two places if we need to disable it by default.  Even if we did it, tao_idl
was never completely silent on Windows.  Is there any major issue with the
diagnostic, e.g., is it screwing up the scoreboard output or something?  If
not, it's better to just leave it as it is.
