Could someone give me more details on the different levels of debug
(-D[x]). For example, is level  essentially no additional
information, or just very limited? Is level  the highest? And what
does it encompass? What is the highest level that would not include
the low level USB info?
Couldn't find it covered in the Docs.
PS - I thought I would post this to the list, in case anyone else has
pondered the same.

ever, but the premise was sort of "if you needed it and had any chance
of understanding it , you probably were slogging around in the source
anyway" so I never saw a reason to legislate it.

It sounds like an excuse, but it really was meant to be a developer
But you're right. We really should have a page in the usage chapter
that describes the various flags like -D, -s, -c, and so on.
I won't get to that in the short term, but I'm putting it on my
markerboard of stuff to do.
