By this I imagine you mean that one should specify --progress=none to
get the current behavior, and the default will be to show a progress bar
when -nv is specified?
I wonder whether this break from historical behavior is likely to be a
problem? I imagine non-interactive uses probably specify -q if they
don't want verbosity, but maybe I'm wrong...
What should happen with -nv if output is not to a tty? Should it then
automatically behave as if --progress=none were specified?
