Hmm.

The initial question was how to do

find / -name foo 2> /dev/null

or similar if /dev/null is not present. (Eat is a place holder for a
imaginary progrom acting as /dev/null replacement).

I guess

find / -name foo 2>/dev/stdout 1>/dev/stderr | eat

would (kinda) work, but it fails if you want to do

find / -name foo 2> /dev/null | less

Can be done with named pipes, though.
