Good point; thanks.  The user extensibility should be documented, too.
So far, the only extensibility I've put in was in tests/silent6.test,
but it's a good idea to have automake add a documented variable.

And those variables should not be in the am__ namespace.  Hmm, I think
that means those variables appearing directly in %VERBOSE% should not be
in that space either.

Will fix.
