Suggestion: default value of `font-lock-verbose' should be nil

I suggest changing the default value of `font-lock-verbose' to nil. The
fontification messages cause noticeable slowdowns on OS X[1] in certain
situations (e.g. viewing src code blocks in org-mode with
`org-src-fontify-natively' turned on). I suspect that the sorts of users
who might appreciate the output would be able to turn the variable on.


[1] I don't know the reason for the platform-specificity.
