(You mean 'propget' -- proplist already has a --verbose option.)

Julian, does your proposal/patch continue to handle the --strict option to
propget correctly? --strict causes byte-for-byte spewing of the property
values, without associated filenames, character transcoding, etc.

(Actually, come to think of it, --strict *should* today raise an error if
used with more than one target, but it doesn't. It just concatenates the
multiple property values in the output stream.)
