Hi Mikhail, Getting a quieter compile out is a great idea. But, you're right that duplicating the command line invocations is a problem. That sets up a fragile system where we'll end up with "make" and "make V=1" actually doing different things. Meanwhile, the feature I've always wanted with systems like this is to document to the user that there's the possibility of adding a "V=1" to the command line to get the full output. Fortunately, I'm sitting next to Chris Wilson right now, and I know that all I need to do is to mention the idea to him, and he'll give us a solution that doesn't duplicate the commands, documents V=1, and will just be a tiny change to our Makefiles. -Carl
