I see now what I did wrong: I added the "--verbose" as a separate
string term, but I didn't notice the double quotes that would make it
be part of dst_path in practice.

Oh, I wasn't accusing you of dereliction of duty :-). I too failed to
think of the consequences at the time. When I wrote "we changed the
default output", it wasn't just a rhetorical device. I really meant
that it is/was all of our responsibility, not just yours.

(I really like the patch. My only objection is about compatibility;
in terms of inherent desirability, the patch is a real improvement
