Summary0003408: Add a verbose debug/dump feature to gnunet-cadet CLI and service.
DescriptionTo allow users to submit better bug reports, gnunet-cadet should have a --dump option. This would cause the service to dump a whole lot of information to stderr with level 'ERROR' (to make sure it gets displayed) and the user could copy-paste this information to Mantis to help find the cause of a misbehavior.
TagsNo tags attached.

Actually, command-line tools should output their main results
using 'fprintf (stdout'), not via the logger.

Implemented in r33730.

This feature makes the CADET *service* to dump all kinds of debug info to stderr (all peers with all their paths and the associated tunnels with all their connections with their paths and congestion control data, and channels with their reliability and low control state and the tunnel key exchange contexts, etc). This is much, much easier than structure and pack it in messages, fragment it, check for errors and parse on the receiving end. It also allows for immediate changes, should extra info be included, updating only one function of the service code instead of the message struct header file, several functions in the service, the API and the CLI.

If needed, it could be compiled in selectively to disable it for "stable releases", but for debug it really makes life much easier.

For non-extra-verbose-only-for-debugging info, the CLI does write metadata to stdout, but only including basic information.
