I believe this is a good default for the boot, and less good for
package installations and when using init.d scripts on the command
line.  See <URL:http://bugs.debian.org/505468> for a report about
this.  Would be nice with feedback on the patch suggested there, as I
hope to have this implemented for Squeeze.

Use the VERBOSE to decide when to print informative messages, and
always report errors no matter the verbosity setting.

Happy hacking,
