I have to agree with that. If errors happen, bjam automatically prints
the command-line, which IMHO is the best behaviour - keep output clean
when there's no errors, and when errors happen, print the offending
command-line as well. I also don't see how the current "actions"
output is complicated (I'm assuming we'r talking about bbv2 here):

gcc.compile.c++ bin\src\gcc\debug\threading-multi\log.o

It says all that's needed - compiler, action, language, configuration,
object being compiled - perfect. I have no need to see the full ugly
command-line every time I compile. Furthermore, clean output also puts
higher priority to warnings, which otherwise simply get hidden between
the long command-lines.
