No worries John, I think we can all agree better and more verbosity
(opting into it) is useful for polishing this gem into a two handed
bastard sword that kills mobile dragons.

would benefit from it spitting out the CLI version, Node version, and the CLI file and line

everything its doing to the command line. I understand that if you're running in an automated
process that you don't want all of that stuff in the process' output, but when debugging troubles
I do.  For example, as npm installs the CLI, I get all sorts of color coded information and
messages letting me know what's happening - I would like the ability to turn that on in the
CLI as well.
