The one that I notice the most is when doing a remote get or pull. Since 
it can take a *long* time to pull a large repository (like darcs 
itself), you pretty much have to use --verbose to convince yourself that 
it really is making progress.

I can't think of other cases where I crave more output (except for 
defaulting to --look-for-adds :-P ), so perhaps the OP could mention a 
few examples of where more output would be helpful.
