i.e. no output, warnings, messages or errors.

I was looking for expect_no_message() and expect_no_warning() which are a bit more fine grained than just "silent". Also, I'd expect errors to trigger anyway, so there's no need to mention them here (or in the new functionality code).

I'd expect everything I test to be silent. I wonder if there's a way of implementing this that doesn't have nearly every test basically duplicated?

I think would just test for absence of warnings, messages and output, since errors should be handled otherwise. Messages and output are usually ignored, and warnings will bubble up (once #254) is fixed.

@mmaechler this would be in addition to #219
