The patch for this endeavor is:

diff --git a/src/bin/psql/describe.c b/src/bin/psql/describe.c
--- a/src/bin/psql/describe.c
+++ b/src/bin/psql/describe.c
@@ -1306,7 +1306,7 @@ describeOneTableDetails(const char *schemaname,
        printTableAddHeader(&cont, headers[i], true, 'l');

    /* Check if table is a view */
-   if (tableinfo.relkind == 'v')
+   if (tableinfo.relkind == 'v' && verbose)
        PGresult   *result;

Any final words?
