In the compromise proposal, -v would only set the default for
--quiet-build, not override it.

But overloading -v is indeed an issue that has already be mentioned by
zmedico. What do you think of the following proposal:
--verbose-build[=n]
--verbose-install[=n]
--verbose-use[=n]
--verbose-downloadsize[=n]
...
with -v setting the default to y for them all, but still allowing to
override a particular verbose output with its specific option.
