No debug info but stay in foreground, how?
It seems the only way to make exim with the -bd option _not_ become a
daemon, and _not_ disconnect from the controlling terminal, is to also
give it a -d option.

I need the foreground behavior to run exim under the supervisor daemon,
but I don't care for the verbose debugging output. How can I limit it
to the absolute minimum? I tried -d-all, but then exim again
disconnects into the background :-(

exim -bdf

is what I use in systemd environments. (Not double checked, so probably
I did something else, but I *think*, my answer is true :)

Thanks, I knew there was a specific option for that! I just forgot what
it was.
