We also don't want the user to see 4 screens of dbg() messages on the
whack socket.

If this only goes one way, eg whack output also goes to dbg(), than I
think that's okay. Although I suspect some grep's in final.sh in testing
will need updates then. But it shouldn't go the other way - dbg
shouldn't go to the whack socket.
