So we can see which scm files are loaded, etc.  It's very helpful in
debugging problems.

Certainly lose it with the -s flag.


Ah. That takes me back to a debate I had with Graham over the website build. I'd originally written it so that you got most of the "traditional" output with make website, but lost all of this (and the make echo) with make -s website - so you effectively could run silent except for real warnings, or see all output. In the end it was decided that the -s flag would only determine whether you see make echo, not whether other output is generated. So if we follow this approach with docs, we'd get rid of verbose, full stop.
