It defaults to off.

It is enabled if the *developer* ( author) chooses so.

I take it you suggest that it default to on only if *both* the developer
and the user choose so?  I take it that, if we introduced an
--enable-silent-rules switch to enable silent rules, and the developer
then went ahead and added
  : ${enable_silent_rules=yes}

to the file, effectively defaulting to silent rather than
verbose, then you will still ask *Automake* to override this somehow?

Please don't get me wrong, I'm open to having defaults discussed, and
set sensibly, but I will refuse to engage in any kind of arms race.
