Yes, that is another possibility. In most cases, I either want to see
nothing but error messages, or I want to see just the list of files that
are updated. It's fine with me to use a new option (-s or perhaps -f)
instead of -v to achieve that.

However, when you use the -n option, the verbose level is forced to 1,
which means that you get the extra lines, including the speedup report,
although that is not particulary useful in this case. So, -n should
implicitely set this new "show me the file names" option, instead of
enabling -v.
