We have a general policy that opt builds should not produce terminal output.  The code added in bug 1226826 is totally violating that and making it hard to use opt builds for things like performance measurements (via dump() of the relevant data to the terminal), because of the terminal spam it produces.

Please put this behind an off by default pref or into the browser console (which is where such things _should_ normally go), not into the terminal.

I know you have long-term plans to create some sort of UI for this, but this is causing problems right now; messaging to the browser console instead of the terminal should be doable reasonably quickly so we stop breaking people's workflows.

Sorry about that, I'll turn it off until we have the UI in place.
