The option is called --keep-going.

Near the start of this thread we mentioned the main use cases. There are basically two:
* Confirm that the repository is in a good state (e.g. before/after a backup);
* Diagnostic mode for use when a problem has been encountered.
Keep-going mode is more useful for the latter; stop-quickly mode *may* be more useful (and is certainly fine) for the former. So it's not obvious that changing the default mode is a good idea.
