I don't mind propget's default changing if a) we already did that with
proplist with no public outcry and b) the --strict mode (which is what I
would expect most folks using pget in scripts would be using) continues to
work as it does today.

I don't mind adding -v to enable this for propget if we promise to always
show the paths (because besides being a better format, we actually are being
a little more verbose than before).

And, though it doesn't really apply to this context so much, I actually
don't mind a little snow in the Charlotte area. It's white. It's fluffy.
And it flips my kids' energy knobs to 11. (Whoops. Somebody ran cmpilato
with --verbose.)
