I'm completely in favor of the -f type functionality, but might it be kind
of confusing to have both verbose="true" and quiet="true" (which I'm
assuming is perfectly legal)? I don't have any brilliant alternative to
the name "quiet", though ("dontcare" is the only one that comes to mind,
which is clearly not in the least bit brilliant :)
