[Mono-devel-list] Suppressing "Compilation succeeded" message

I'd like to submit a patch to remove the "Compilation succeeded" message 
produced by the C# compiler and possibly other tools. Could the main 
developers please advise as to the preferred approach.

1) A successful compilation will display nothing by default and display 
"Compilation succeeded" with a /verbose command line option.
2) The "Compilation succeeded" message appears by default and as is 
suppressed with a /quiet command line option.
3) Get rid of "Compilation succeeded" altogether (on complete success 
that is no warnings and no errors)

Most compiler tools including Microsoft's csc.exe follow 3) and this is 
my preferred option, but I'll submit a patch with whatever is most 
popular. My intention is to leave all other warning and error messages 
as they are as I just want to implement the "I don't want to see 
anything unless there is a problem approach".
