ZPM - silent mode ?

I'm looking for a way to run ZPM (especially install) in a total silent mode with no output.

I tried -quiet flag but it continues to chat to me like my wife. 
Same result for both ways :

zpm: USER>install -q native-api-objectscript         


USER>set sc=##class(%ZPM.PackageManager).Shell("install -q native-api-objectscript")
[native-api-objectscript]       Reload START
[native-api-objectscript]       Reload SUCCESS
[native-api-objectscript]       Module object refreshed.
[native-api-objectscript]       Validate START
[native-api-objectscript]       Validate SUCCESS
[native-api-objectscript]       Compile START
[native-api-objectscript]       Compile SUCCESS
[native-api-objectscript]       Activate START
[native-api-objectscript]       Configure START
[native-api-objectscript]       Configure SUCCESS
[native-api-objectscript]       Activate SUCCESS


Background for this request:

All variations of IRIS Native API for  { Node.js, Java, Python, .Net, Objectscript }
contain a Class IRIS with a more or less identic method  ClassMethodValue(classname,classmethod,params...)

This could be a quite comfortable way to run ZPM install on various servers, various namespaces
and skipping the repeated "connect -  login to terminal - run zpm "  procedure.

But I'm open for proposals to distribute code on multiple servers differently.

Yeah, at the moment it does not support a real quiet way, and at the moment, it's just not verbose logging. Verbose produces even more logs.

So, I would recommend, just fill the issue in the repo.

And pull-requests are very welcome, of course ;)

Inspired by real life I created a workaround for my special case.
At home,
I close the doors and put my super InterSystems headphones on (not plugged in).

I call a small helper function that does a JOB to the background where the install may tell his stories to //./nul
It's nothing to win a price nor is It my preferred solution though it does what I expect!
