Sorry, mis-communication there. I didn't mean a recursive propget would
print the old format, I meant a recursive propget would choose formatted
output instead of value-only output.

So:

A. Make "propget" print just the plain value with no header when there
is only one target, like it used to, but use the new indented format
when there may be multiple results (e.g. with "-R" or multiple
command-line targets). Remove the new use of "-v". (Leave "proplist" as
it is.)

But it looks like nobody particularly wants me to make that change.

As for Mike's comment about "proplist" format having changed with "no
public outcry", it hasn't been in a release yet...
