Give --no-verbose a go instead of -q. There's a bug registered somewhere
about this (and --no-verbose being the workaround) but I couldn't find
it after a brief search.

I proposed a while back that commit only show the new revision number
unless -v was given. That was agreed to generally so I'll implement that
soon unless someone beats me to it.
