It seems you mistake suckless for the minimalism "movement". Printing
concise and to the point error messages is suckless. It makes the software
discoverable by users and it does not incur relevant overhead.

Removing things that you right now do not need, but that are still a
not-stupid part of the software (like error checking, FFS), is not the
same as producing suckless software.
