I've found out, that in RPCClient.create_connection, according to
ipalib/backend.py:164, the variable verbose is not an int, rather a
bool ( verbose=(self.env.verbose >= 2) ), so I decided not to break the
workflow of this variable, but rather create a new one(log-payload). I
was thinking, making verbose to an int would cause more work than to do
it this way.
