[development] Being noisy on installation...

So, I was reading over:
and saw one of my personal pet peeves jump out: "Even if your module
doesn't have need of a hook_install function, it's nice to Display a
note confiriming that the module is installed and ready for action."
Core doesn't do it at all and, as far as I can tell, it originated
with Views (which most folks take as an admonition that It's Right).
Thoughts from the peanut gallery? At first blush, I'm horrifically
opposed to it, because I think we have enough to worry about then
reading /successful/ messages - I'd much rather Drupal interrupt me
when something /bad/ has happened, not when something I /expect/ to
happen actually happened. But, playing my own devil's advocate, I
could say that "well, there's precedence already - we always inform
the user when something has been created, updated, or deleted
Whatever we decide, I care about consistency. If we're going to
recommend this in our style guides, then /core should do the same
.sig on the other machine
