Following my other question about extending the io server, it came to
me that a simpler way to capture output (while one is already hacking
the io module) -- let io:format send the requests to both the normal
output driver and to the new handler.

This way, the intrusion is minimal. It could even be done without
hacking the io source, by using Smerl.
