I'm not sure about the best way, but this hack looks nice:

>>> def print_verbose(txt):
...     print txt
...
>>> def pass_verbose(txt):
...     pass
...
>>> def func():
...   i = 1
...   verbose('message!')
...   i+= 1
...   return i
...
>>> verbose = print_verbose
>>> func()
message!
2
>>> verbose = pass_verbose
>>> func()
2

An extra log_verbose is easily created as well.

Cheerio, Marc.
