I've been running it like this lately:

make -s check-world -j4 PROVE_FLAGS='-j4 --quiet --nocolor --nocount'

and it is still pretty noisy ;-).  The only place where it sits for
more than a couple of seconds without printing anything is at the very
start, which I believe to be the initial "make temp-install" step,
which would be unaffected by prove verbosity anyway.

So I'd be +1 for just removing --verbose by default.  Anybody who really
wants it can put it back via PROVE_FLAGS.
