There isn't.  I suppose we could add switches.  But it
doesn't seem like that would be much easier to use than an
alternate mh_profile, even if that was created on the fly.

Would an "-outfile filename" switch to mhstore be sufficient?
It would support a filename of "-", of course.  If used with
multiple parts, the user would have to deal with the output, but
maybe that would be useful with mutiple log files or whatever.
