 `--qq` doesn't fit into the idea of shortening options/flags:

 --verbose --v
 --quiet   --q

 This is applied automatically to the module options (e.g. `input` versus
 `in`) and although I'm not sure what is the mechanism for the long
 (standard/common) flags I think the general rules should be the same. So
 now --q is little ambiguous as it can stand for `--quiet` or `--qq`.
 Leaving aside that `--qq` doesn't have the long or short version.

 I suggest to use `--xquiet` (X as in XS and XL). But perhaps there might
 be an way without letter X.

 Please, make also some suggestions on how Python API should be extended,
 that's an important part of this change.

 I tested the following

 g.region -p --qq --verbose

 and it goes though without any warning. I think the code disables warnings
 and then gives a warning.
