Actually, yes. I'm used to be able to see what Rake's actually doing. At 
this moment I end up typing '-v' manually. I'm using Rake as Phusion 
Passenger's build system. C++ source compilation can take a while (a 
minute or 2) and it's kinda annoying not to be able to see the compiler 
commands that are being invoked.
