hi actually i would also go with Chris as i don't think any compiler should
produce output by default.
anyways if this is going to create lot of trouble then at a flag should be
provided by which tao_idl can be made silent (may be not on Windows

actually i am trying to make my compilation going like this
[TAO IDL] idl file name
[COMPIL-C++] c++ file name
[COMPILE-C] c file name
[MAKEDEPEND] make.depend
[ARCHIVE] .a file name

here tao_idl unnecessary outputs "processing xxx.idl", i wanted some flag to
make it silent.
