    Take my protest.

    All you need is to change a "1" into a "0" to enforce the wanted "shutup",
    and personally you should know that, and you should know why I chose
    this verbosity and probing level as the "delivery default".

    During "new installs", especially with new users, some transparency about
    the CDROM situation is a must.
    I guess it is well-documented even for a newbie how to configure sbpcd
    for silence and efficiency.
