Oh, so now we can have verbose quietness? Or is it quiet verbosity?
That quickly leads to insanity.... :/

The quiet flag only suppresses output that is otherwise logged and
output when a failure occurs. Hence setting the quiet won't cause
any loss of functionality or error detection for these tests so you
should just add the quiet flag to the tests.
