There appears to be a small consensus on the -dev list to alter the filter so that logging is on by default. Right now it defaults off, with both a command line flag and a config file setting available to turn it on.

2.8.0 changes the sample config file to default "Syslog" to "true", but the default in the code is still false.

Some options:

(1) Flip the meaning of "-l", and set the default config file setting to "true". People don't like this due to the issue of backward compatibility.

(2) Create a different flag that forces logging off. This would leave us with two command line flags that have exactly opposite meanings.

We should re-discuss this for a future release.
