Hi Hugo,

The get_option values are most informative.  There is a separate command
to change verbosity.  Many of the yes/no options may be supported with
set_option.  I would recommend editing the config file; as the results
of set_option are temporary, the config_file is reread on reload or restart.

Your experience with the verbosity is because the set_option and
get_option commands expose the internal code in unbound: the config
structure, which is sometimes used directly, and sometimes settings are
copied elsewhere (processed) at startup time.

Best regards,
