​I partially agree with you. Indeed it is easily possible to redirect to
'/dev/null' using a redirect,
we miss two functionalities here:
1. When you search with yaourt w/o parameters (e.g. 'yaourt package-query')
all search results are redirected to '/dev/null', making this useless.
2. The coloring that yaourt uses while outputting is lost.

In that case (specially #1), I don't think this pkg doesn't provide any
extra functionality.
