a) use ordinary Message that you can individual turn on and off
b) Unevaluated prevent the evaluation in a function call of
a function that would evaluate its arguments. If you whant to
write a function that does not evaluate its arguemtns it must have
tPrint[seq___] /; Testing := Print[seq]
tPrint[___] := Null
