[TIP] [tox] Capturing output from commands

Thanks, I'll take a crack at that!

I hadn't noticed before, but by fiddling around a bit, but it looks like:
- Tox merges stdout and stderr of the commands into Tox's stdout.
- shell redirection inside the commands doesn't work (at least on Windows).

Intuitively, I would expect stderr from my commands to be forwarded to
stderr.  Since this is not the case, I was willing to fall back onto
redirecting stdout from my process directly to a file, but then I can't do
that inside my Tox.ini file as my command gets the ">foo.log" as a CLI

Is there any non-obvious rationale for this?  If not, would you consider
changes in this behavior?
