Just because something is how it is designed does not make it not a bug; it's
simply a bug in design rather than a bug in code. I've marked as WONTFIX since
there's clearly no inclination to change the behaviour but I don't accept that
the report is invalid.

I'll create another bug suggesting a helpful message (something like DON'T USE
-L) in the usage text - at least that way new users shouldn't spend hours
staring at broken output.

FWIW any script that runs -L and doesn't add -v is probably liable to breakage
anyway, unless it explicitly requests chains for specific interfaces (in which
case you could discard the new change).
