lsinput outputs to stderr for no good reason

Bug Description

Binary package hint: input-utils

The input is often longer than a screenful, and so it would be convenient to pipe it into a pager, but for no apparent reason it goes to stderr instead.

---------------
input-utils (0.0.20051128-4ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/show-numeric-key-values: always output the numeric
    value for keycodes in addition to the symbolic name
  * debian/control: Vcs-Browser, not Vcs-Browse.
  * debian/patches/stdout-not-stderr: informational messages should
    always go to stdout by convention, only errors to stderr.
    LP: #307513.
