Add NIKOLA_SHOW_TRACEBACKS environment variable #2858

Not showing tracebacks to end-users is generally fine, but as a developer, it’s pretty annoying. On the other hand, NIKOLA_DEBUG=1 floods the console with useless Yapsy debug messages.

So, the fix: add NIKOLA_SHOW_TRACEBACKS that shows tracebacks but no debug stuff (as a middle ground).

(FYI, I added it to my .zshrc to make stuff easier.)

If this wasn't already merged, I would have suggested making NIKOLA_DEBUG a non-boolean option. Or, at least accept other values for levels of verbosity (with '1', 'true', 'yes' defaulting to current behavior.)
