I do also think that option should go back in, just to be explicit.

A more important omission is the deletion of a message to indicate that
the server is acting in archive_mode....so there's no visual clue in the
log to warn an admin that its been turned off now or incorrectly
specified (by somebody else, of course). (At least using the default log
mode).
