keyserver verbosity

Is there a way to make gnupg display which keyserver it's connecting to
when it attempts a connection for upload or download of keys? If not, it
would be helpful if gnupg would display this information.

The keyservers should display:
1) The URL of the keyserver which is being connected.
2) That it is a "Preferred Keyserver URL", if such is set in the signature.
3) That the connection and retrieval was successful or failed.
4) If failed, that the keyserver is trying the default server (if set)
or next server in the list. All keyserver URLs should be shown at
connection time.
