Capturing on client-side would probably be acceptable for most people, though you should take care to ensure that environment variable
substitutions (JOB_ID, etc) occur properly.

Just because it's an interactive job that doesn't mean you need to look at the output.  Running as an interactive job allows Ctrl-C (SIGINT)
to be captured by program running on the execution node.  Also you may not want to be looking at BOTH stdout and stderr.

Implementing the -o/-e as a tee would not be useful to me, and is not what I and other LSF users would expect.  In terms of feature parity,
LSF has already established the de facto standard that -o/-e on interactive jobs should fully redirect and not "tee".  
See http://www.slac.stanford.edu/comp/unix/package/lsf/LSF6.1_doc/html/lsf6.1_admin/G_interactivebsub.html#37631

If people actually want tee functionality, then they can explicitly use tee as a part of the command line, rather than -o/-e.
