Have you tried it in the case you complained about at the start of this?
These days I routinely build elaborate pieces of Zope using -q, and the only
msgs I ever see then are things like

   Creating library build\temp.win32-2.3\Release\MultiMapping.lib and object

I believe those are generated by Microsoft's compiler (the case-sensitive
string "Creating" appears nohwere in the distutils source; and yes, these go
to stdout too), and if so there's nothing distutils can do about that.  I
don't see any messages that look like they come from distutils.
