I find these logs more useful than not.  If a build unexpectedly goes
wrong and (by definition) I didn't anticipate that (by saving the output
to a log file), then I have to do the whole thing again.  I would much
rather you didn't make this change.  I'd have no problem if you decided
to compress the log files.
