Hi Robert,

I can see this working a couple of ways. We've got a -b switch which
results in a complete backtrace showing up. That seems more or less
synonymous with the notion of --verbose, which we don't have
explicitly. So, what if we added a --verbose switch that affected any
other options, like Heckle, or RCov? I think that would be simpler
than trying to come up with targeted --verbose switches.
