Look in the main() routine, you'll see the global variable 'verbose'
initialized to 0 (off).  Later, in the AVR write functions, the
progress code is only enabled if verbose > 0.  The -v option
increments the verbosity level by 1 each time it is specified.

Used to be that the progress was always printed.  I believe that it
was found that this slowed down the Windows version significantly due
to its slow console printing routine.  Thus, to help Windows folks,
the progress was only enabled if verbose output was selected.
