Sorry, I don't get that.  

Since the default behaviour is to be verbose, the I/O part will be
pulled in, whether user changes it to something different of not.
Unless the linker is very smart, but then in that speculative case, it
would also have enough information to notice that
__verbose_terminate_handler() is not necessary (since static and not
used in the current module) and to eliminate it altogether with the
I/O bits.
