  You didn't ask for 4 characters or less... ;)

  Be glad it is at least it is possible in bash, if you wanted it.
Unless things have changed that is not even possible in the c shell
variants (*).

  What you are asking for is a very complicated (2) operation... 


  I welcome any csh people to correct me if I'm wrong, without using
temporary files, the '-o' option to strace, or fancy /dev or /proc 
entries... filter through grep the stderr of strace while leaving 
stdout intact.

  Even if you implemented in C you would be making like 13 system calls
(1 pipe, 2 fork, 2 exec, 5 dup2, 3 close)
