Ah. This is something I do not like, at least not in the simplistic sense of writing to the Transcript.
a) may very well not have an open Transcript
b) may be compiling code in a system where nobody could ever see a Transcript
c) can't handle the error

A suitable exception, perhaps with a defaultAction to write to a Transcript, would be easier to live with.
