cdebootstrap supports --quiet ; it's implemented essentially by
filtering the output. So it seems the best way really may be to use
grep or such, but preserve the exit status. I guess the filter I'm
using is okay, but could perhaps be better integrated.
Again, someone just pointed out the "moreutils" package which includes
a tool for piping with exit status of the first command.
 Which, with my patch, is used by d-l, lh_config --quiet.
