I think redirecting error messages to /dev/null would be a good idea, but 
seeing > /dev/null is like a big, well-lit sign saying "something is up here; 
this command is generating a good deal of output."  Hence, a brief explanation 
should still be there, something like "this command will attempt to strip many 
files that aren't proper ELF binaries, and strip will give an error message 
for each of these files.  These error messages are safe to ignore, so we 
redirect them to /dev/null.
