Defines functions lifecycle_verbosity

#' Control the verbosity of deprecation signals
#'
#' @description
#'
#' There are 3 levels of verbosity for deprecated functions: silence,
#' warning, and error. Since the lifecycle package avoids disruptive
#' warnings, the default level of verbosity depends on the lifecycle
#' stage of the deprecated function, on the context of the caller
#' (global environment or testthat unit tests cause more warnings),
#' and whether the warning was already issued (see the help for
#' [deprecation functions][deprecate_soft]).
#'
#' You can control the level of verbosity with the global option
#' `lifecycle_verbosity`. It can be set to:
#'
#' * `"default"` or `NULL` for the default non-disruptive settings.
#'
#' * `"quiet"`, `"warning"` or `"error"` to force silence, warnings or
#'   errors for deprecated functions.
#'
#' Note that functions calling [deprecate_stop()] invariably throw
#' errors.
#'
#' @examples
#' if (rlang::is_installed("testthat")) {
#'   library(testthat)
#'
#'   mytool <- function() {
#'     deprecate_soft("1.0.0", "mytool()")
#'     10 * 10
#'   }
#'
#'   # Forcing the verbosity level is useful for unit testing. You can
#'   # force errors to test that the function is indeed deprecated:
#'   test_that("mytool is deprecated", {
#'     rlang::with_options(lifecycle_verbosity = "error", {
#'       expect_error(mytool(), class = "defunctError")
#'     })
#'   })
#'
#'   # Or you can enforce silence to safely test that the function
#'   # still works:
#'   test_that("mytool still works", {
#'     rlang::with_options(lifecycle_verbosity = "quiet", {
#'       expect_equal(mytool(), 100)
#'     })
#'   })
#' }
#'
#' @name verbosity
