c) Loading spatialite from Python code via standalone pysqlite DB-API
   (python-pysqlite2 package):

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from pysqlite2 import dbapi2
>>> print(dbapi2.sqlite_version)
3.7.9
>>> print(dbapi2.version)
2.6.3
>>> conn = dbapi2.connect(**{'database': 'test3.sqlite'})
>>> conn.enable_load_extension(True)
>>> cur = conn.cursor()
>>> cur.execute("SELECT load_extension('libspatialite.so.3')")

There doesn't seem to be any hook in sqlite3 extensions API or
SpatiaLite API to silence it.

It is printed from the spatialite_init(int verbose) function
in libspatialite-3.0.0-stable/src/spatialite/spatialite.c:16546
(that, by the 

/* used when SQLite initializes SpatiaLite via statically linked lib */

comment is supposed to be called only when SpatiaLite is loaded
statically from sqlite?) but I'm unable to follow the execution stack, to
understand why that function is getting called in the first place if
SpatiaLite is being loaded dynamically and how to influence the value of
its `verbose` argument.

Unconditionally printing random stuff to stdout from a library being
dinamically doesn't seem right. The scenario where I'm seeing is when
runnning tests in a stack using sqplite/SpatiaLite (Django Python Web
framework pus its GeoDjango sub-framework own test suite)
