This logging issue has drained a lot of time during feature freeze when
we should be getting existing patches in and completed.

I am willing to apply a perfect patch but I am not willing to spend
anymore time on this than I have to.  This is all something that
shouldn't be happening during feature freeze.

I realize this patch is important to Andreas but every patch is
important to its author.  

We have done just fine without this functionality for years so I don't
see the rush to get it in.  You can say Win32 will make it more
significant, but if it doesn't work on Win32 yet, the argument doesn't

And I am not going to apply a patch with the promise that a more
complete one is coming later.

I am not saying I am going to reject the patch if it arrives but I am
not but I am not going to be upset if it doesn't make it in until 7.6.
