I see, I must somehow missed that aspect of the miniframework. Well, question
is - is it really a good decision and thing we should do?

I.e. slowly moving towards --verbose option, deprecating --debug, given we use
--debug in most commands and people are using it? This could cause lot of
unnecessary churn in stable distributions that would wish to rebase to FreeIPA,
like CentOS or RHEL - and for what reason?

I will be against removing --debug option from the main commands unless there
is a very good reason and justification to do so.
