please add an option to change bootlogd’s behaviour to also
pass through the (unmodified, unfiltered (especially not
control-character-filtered)) output to the original console.
This is especially useful when you boot a system that has,
for example, a serial console or (on m68k) a NatFeat or
parallel one, where you want to see the boot progress on
occasionally but which is normally run headlessly, for
which you want the boot output saved into a logfile.
Should be somewhat trivial to implement, just add a flag,
make it settable (e.g. using /etc/default), and, upon the
presence of the flag, do a second write in the main loop
(except before the filtering).
