You might look into the logging code. Since most times you have that
level of verbosity in ~/.bzr.log
Or at the very least, we could look into how we handle logging levels,
and be able to supply command options (possibly global) to change the
visual logging level, and ~/.bzr.log logging level.

By the way, if we are changing the default config directory to
~/.bazaar, shouldn't we also change the log file to ~/.bazaar/log?
Possibly switching to something else if ~/.bazaar does not exist. (So
that you can debug problems with the config directory)
