- -q -nv is a nonsensical combination; they say contradictory things. One
says to emit only a little output; the other says to emit no output at all.
A progress bar for -nv has already been requested, and is tracked at
I don't mind putting this into 1.12 if someone wants to write the patch;
otherwise, I probably won't get to it for some time. I've got some
doubts as to whether "-nv --progress=bar" is the right way to achieve
this: is that the behavior we want if the user specified "progress=bar"
in their wgetrc file and then gave the "-nv" command-line option? Then
again, who puts "progress=bar" in their wgetrc?
