[wix-users] "Noisy" Output when building

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but mailing list archive cannot be searched atm. :-(

When building wixproj from VS or MSBuild the complete commandline including full paths to the tools and all parameters is outputted in the output window
for one tool call this is usually more than 2000 characters. As we are having lots of wix projects this generates lots of noise in the buildoutput.

I already set the MSBuild build output verbosity to "Quiet". This removed the MSBuild noise, but the commandlines still remain.
Is there any way to customize the output to so there is less stuff outputted, like when you build a c# or c++ project?
