That's what I heard, too, and the old POV-Ray license explicitly forbade 
releasing a patch to suppress that part of the code.

However, with POV-Ray 3.7.0 now released under the AGPL, that 
restriction is gone for good, and we can probably expect future versions 
to provide a "silent" mode - either as an official feature, or at least 
as an unofficial patch.
