Getting rid of the message queue ?

   I am beginning to wonder if the message queue has any usefulness.
We can't use fprintf() safely because it is not thread-safe, but what
about just locking around the fprintf() ? We need locking to write
in the message queue anyway, and my guess is that there won't be any
performance hit. Any comments on this ?

   Also, another suggestion we already had a talk about is to reverse
the warning level meaning, from 0 (quiet) to 4 (very verbose output).
This will confuse the users a bit less.
