[Nut-upsuser] How verbose should NUT be by default?

  A "-q" (or an envvar to same effect) is another way to skin the cat, as
discussed in that ticket and now followed-up by

  It still leaves open the question of whether default runs of NUT programs
- especially as services or shutdown hooks - should be that quiet (whether
because C code is changed unconditionally, or conditionally with such an
option or envvar, or by redirecting "noise" from scripts to /dev/null)?..
Say, for `upsmon -K` example, is it useful to know that "power down was NOT
requested" and why (may be misconfig, e.g. flag file left on an unmounted
filesystem) - or is it indeed useless noise for the dozens of "ordinary"
reboots and shutdowns which happen not because of a power failure?
