RT 4.2.10 regression: HTML -> text conversion message for scripts on STDERR

Hi,

found a little regression in RT 4.2.10.

RT 4.2.10 started to log a info message which tool is used for HTML ->
text conversion [1].

This leads to all scripts, which don’t change the default STDERR output
level (info), to log the above message to STDERR.

For example for sbin/rt-email-dashboards you get this send by cron every
hour.

Hm; fair point. I’d probably be fine stepping this down to a debug
level warning. I do think that most of the automated command-line tools
should default to logging only at “warning”, but there’s no great way
to do that at current. 3ce1ac4ee and a2afc4e4 are a step in this
direction, but in 4.2 they explicitly only are used in non-cron
situations.
