Ah, I didn't think about this. This is great, thanks! I have logging now
off on one machine.
Still, though, it's a bit of a yes/no game. It would be nice to have some
influence on the detail logging when logging more than warnings. F.i.
*one* line of logging with the most interesting data instead of being so
verbose as we are now. This would be helpful for those who want to scan
their logs with logwatch or other automated tools. F.i. normal operation
like "read x entries from whitelist" or "logged sf534ggd to MailSQL
logging child" isn't sooo interesting. But the amount of messages going
thru MS or one wants just to see that everything is well by getting
continous output of "processed x messages" or so. But one doesn't need all
the full logging that is now there. However, at the moment it's all or
nothing isn't it?
