Some components honor a -v (or --verbose) switch to enable maximum debug logging.

But not all is set to maximum. For example, it provides complete logging for "auth" but not "datasrc".

This is confusing.

One fix is to either clearly document this. Another fix is to make everything "*" logged at DEBUG 99 when using --verbose.

I'd consider the principle of least surprise to make behavior the same and not require people to read documentation. So, I like Jeremy's suggestion of logging at DEBUG 99 when using --verbose. Perhaps we could also set it to DEBUG 30 with one --verbose, and DEBUG 99 with two or more --verbose? This would mean a single verbose is probably useful for administrators, but you an still get full debugging if you want:
