Follow-up Comment #1, bug #44966 (project wget):

For me, it makes perfect sense to make -q to be quiet *unless* an error
happens, rather than adding an extra command line switch. When things screw up
(and specially if you're running wget in a script) you want wget to fail
noisily, instead of shutting up. What do you think?

In the meanwhile, if your only purpose is to tell whether Wget has succeeded,
you can probe the return value (remember to shift 8 bits left on POSIX).
