please see the mail georgi sent to the list at 13th may and the followup 

maybe 10% of users want a "quiet" build, so why force your preference on 
anybody ?

if it was the other way around (explicitly enable the "quiet" stuff), i 
wouldn't be as opposed to this idea.
but effectively it gains you nothing except "awesome looks" *sigh*, and 
adds additional bloat to the Makefile.
