Description

There are times (recovery mode, for example) where running athena-auto-update from the terminal is desirable. If there are a ton of updates, it can take a while and look like nothing is happening (because the output is going to a log). We should conditionally (either conditionalize on the "cron" argument, or take a "-v" argument or something) display output on stdout. The case could be made for a progress bar, or all output, or even to _not_ log to the normal place, since that should always be the log from the automatic invocation.

aptitude now takes a new "-v" option which prints the output of the v() function to stdout as well as the log.
