      Test: use cli tools. try to get an error and observe that a biggish unicode 'X' , in red on some systems, appears to indicate to admin that cli has output an error

      example of cli test run using cli_error() call which puts in the visual cue:
      php admin/cli/upgrade.php
      ❌ No upgrade needed for the installed version 2.8dev (Build: 20140918) (2014091800). Thanks for coming anyway!

    Description

      often cli errors are just text which administrators can easily miss. this aims to put a visual cue into cli_error.

      note: there is no cli api call for cli_ok() or so...

      ps: fwrite(STDERR, "\xF0\x9F\x91\x8E ". $text);
