So, I think you'll be pleased with what this was for and how it's supposed to work:
Those logs are meant to be turned off by default, turned off for 99% of gameplay time. Additionally, all output, even minor output, is meant to go through the Log class, e.g. "Video init'd successfully."
Then, if we have a user with a bizarre bug, we pass a command line switch, have it generate this log, and have them e-mail it to us.
So feel free to turn it off by default.
