Sorry, I realized only after your commit that a better name would be
next-error-verbose.  The word “verbosity” usually applies to
customization of the level of verbosity, but I see that you defined
a boolean variable for which “verbose” would be more appropriate.

Also this makes clear that the meaning of its value should be reversed -
to show verbose messages when the value is non-nil.  But I have no opinion
about its default value, if you want you can change it from nil to t.
