The log generated by default of a local execution of piuparts (to test a package, for example) is very long and very complex to understand.
It would be useful to have an option that allow the end user to choose the level
of log he wants.

In my patch, I added a --log-level option, with 4 values: error, info, dump and debug. By default, the log level is still dump.
I also added an info message saying that the package has been successfully installed.

Hope it will be helpful.

In Ubuntu, we've applied the attached patch to achieve the following:

  * piuparts.py: added log-level option, to keep the log small. This option
    limits the output to info and error messages instead of default debug level.
    Also added an info message about successful installation of deb files.
