I think this is a discussion of what -v does and if it can be made to 
provide some of the same functionality that "buildout versions" and 
"dump picked versions" provides. I'll also throw in that I like using 
"dump requirements"[1] which is another fork of "dump picked versions" 
that outputs pip-styles requirements.txt files.

Personally, when I run -v or -vv or -vvvv I expect to see debug output, 
not necessarily something that is formatted for other purposes… for 
whatever that is worth.
