[Rd] library( ) and verbose=

The Hmisc package has in its .First.lib function a verbose argument, which I thought was the way to allow users to suppress certain messages, by issuing library(Hmisc, verbose=FALSE). But I see that library( ) does not pass verbose to .First.lib. The default for verbose in Hmisc is TRUE because .First.lib prints some important information about masked functions. What is the best way to fix this? Is it reasonable to expect library to pass verbose along? I'm running R 1.9 on debian.
