instead of cat or print or however it may be output to the console at the moment, the message function interacts nicer with other R / knitr functionality, I think.
I agree. Currently it uses cat(), but I think we'll change it to message() in the next few days. I don't see a reason we need to use cat() for it. Does anyone else?
