So, what the answer on my question: is the output of some commands (such
a 'commit') that print their output to stderr should be readable by user
or not?

I found this issue when I prepare bug report about revert on added
directories. And I cannot simply prepare batch file with the set of
commands and redirect output of the execution of this batch file because
some of commands emit output to stderr. But it's a my own sorrow because
of limitations of OS Windows.
