I think this might be a typo.

The GNU standards state that arguments given to long options use "=", so
it should be:

> -V --verbose[=KEY] [quiet|progress|verbose|trace]

As an example, see the next line:

  md> -q --quiet alias for --verbose=quiet
                                               ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I do something like this in GNU make and it works fine, FWIW.
