#176: Bad verbosity message lacks crucial detail
  Reporter:  guest                |        Owner:      
      Type:  enhancement          |       Status:  new 
  Priority:  normal               |    Milestone:      
 Component:  Cabal                |      Version:  HEAD
  Severity:  minor                |     Keywords:      
Difficulty:  very easy (<1 hour)  |   Ghcversion:  6.6 
  Platform:  Windows              |  
 I wanted to run Cabal and get the maximum information for a bug report, so
 I did:

  runhaskell Setup sdist -v5
  Setup: Bad verbosity 5

 Which is a fine error message, but adding it to:

  Setup: Bad verbosity 5 (maximum allowed 3)

 Would save me doing a linear search to find the maximum value.

 (GHC version 6.8.1 with HEAD Cabal, but that's not a Trac approved
