I added that debug output because it's useful to diagnose problems,
particularly if our code is misinterpreting something. Although generally
I would expect, if we're misinterpreting something, it will cause
trouble very early on, so you'll lose your connection long before
you get to 1GB of output.

Otherwise, yeah, -V is probably more practical.

Further changes to verbosity are unlikely... Just remember that "-z"
means "turn on *everything*" so whenever we add new debug levels,
-z will change. The other debug switches are constant though, -V
will never change.
