Use the source, Luke.

error is a wrapper around cvs_outerr (not cvs_output) that prepends the
program name and subcommand information to the message and provides some
printf-like formating for variable substitution.  cvs_output and
cvs_outerr are lower-level routines that simply send a buffer to stdout
or stderr respectively.

All output is sent back to the client.
