I have added PushErrorHandler(), PopErrorHandler(), and Error() methods
in the "gdal" module.  The PushErrorHandler() takes either the name of a
well known error handler, or a Python function to invoke.

For example:

import gdal

def MyHandler( err_class, err_code, msg ):
     print err_class, err_code, msg

gdal.Error( msg = 'Test Message' )

gdal.PushErrorHandler( "CPLQuietErrorHandler" )

gdal.Error( msg = 'Test Message 2' )

gdal.PushErrorHandler( MyHandler )

gdal.Error( msg = 'Test Message 3' )
gdal.Debug( 'test1', 'message' )


gdal.Error( msg = 'Test Message 4' )


gdal.Error( msg = 'Test Message 5' )


warmerda at gdal2200[40]% ./test1.py
ERROR 1: Test Message
3 1 Test Message 3
1 0 Sun Mar  2 12:23:26 2003: test1: message
ERROR 1: Test Message 5

As you can see, "gdal.PushErrorHandler( 'CPLQuietHandler' )" should be
sufficient for your needs.  The error handler mechanism can also be
used to redirect debug output.
