Okay, I didn't look closely enough then. Yet nevertheless, at least
for debugging purposes we routinely tell people to lower the log
level, and some tend to keep things that way in order to avoid
having to re-create an eventual problem with maximum output
enforced. And we wouldn't want to spam their consoles (and at
the same time make our lives harder when it comes to going
through those logs).
