running mount will also tell you that it worked.  

as for recovery, i have always said leave the message mentioning that
recovery was needed, i want to know that.  but if no recovery was
needed, and nothing went wrong then nothing should be printed at all.
the lack of news is telling me everything was fine.  

just like rm does not say `Sucessfully unlinked file: /blah' for
everything it removes, it only prints something if there was a
problem, eg: permission denied, readonly filesystem, or whatever.

or in this case:

rm: Starting unlink of file: /blah
rm: Successfully unlinked file: /blah

zero lines is enough on clean sucessful mounts ;-)

dunno maybe, but i still prefer not to see anything if all went well.

so again, a compile time option perhaps?
