strange behaviour when using (conflicting) options -q --progress

-q seems to override -v completely, but when combined with --progress,
a single newline is output when there are no updates transferred; but if
a file *was* updated nothing at all is output.

It seems that there might be some short-circuited code when nothing is
trasferred, but that a check for quiet mode is skipped somehow.
