Comment (by eschnett):

 I usually set the option

 TimerReport::out_filename = "TimerReport"

 to redirect this output into files. This has the added advantage that it
 provides timing information for all processes, which can be very useful -–
 timing information from a single process only is misleading and should
 probably be disabled by default.

 To avoid confusion, all parameters that influence the schedule timers
 should have similar names. Your new parameter is called
 output_schedule_timers. Do you want to rename out_filename as well, so
 that it has "schedule" in its name?

 Another way would be to handle screen output and file output for schedule
 timers via separate parameters. The new boolean decides on screen output,
 and the file name decides only on file output; an empty file name disables
 file output instead of enabling screen output.
