Current dictionaries-common package already provides info to STDERR during
the first installation (and preconfiguration) if envvar
is set. It is however only about the process of default dict selection, but
if no preconfiguration is happenning, that info will not be shown. No info
is currently shown for individual dicts install, but I can try adding some
details about old and new choices if needed.
