And -fsched-verbose supports multiple levels of verbosity.  I don't see
how this could be accomplished with -details.

If -fcselib-verbose is to remain, it would make sense to add multiple
levels of verbosity to it as well.  Perhaps not specifically for the
uses in cselib, but IIRC for the ones in var-track that would help (I
remember having wished for that during some debugging sessions, but not
enough to actually implement it ;-).  But var-track probably deserve a
separate command line option anyway.

Yeah, this option is a mess.  I'll take it out from this patchset, and
then assess what kind of value there is in proposing it separately.
