Should portage hide build output from the user by default?

There has recently been a discussion on gentoo-dev about making portage output less noisy

A solution was implemented to suppress the build output (the configure, make and install) by default, unless the user specifies --quiet-build=n explicitly. There were both supporters and critics of that idea, but no real data about what users think.
