--- Comment #4 from Liviu Ionescu <ilg at livius dot net> ---
if -o (as an option to redirect the output) is an appropriate solution for the
GNU compiler/linker and for countless other programs (most GNU programs in
fact), I fail to see why objdump is so special that may not use the same widely
accepted solution.

according to the dictionary, 'dump' means 'copy (stored data) to a different
location, especially so as to protect against loss', not necessarily on stdout,
as you try to imply.

of course you are free to call it whatever you want, but by denying this
additional functionality you are just limiting the tool usability.
