I didn't think we needed this either, but there were a few people who did
read the logs (without much more knowledge of setup).  Frankly, some of
the setup-related questions on the list result in a request to post the
log, and apparently some people do peek into them (after searching the
archives - whoohoo, somebody *is* doing it!).  An example is
<>.  So I decided that
since we do write a reasonably verbose message to the log, we should
clarify it.  Otherwise, let's make it cryptic enough not to arouse
people's suspicitions.  Does the above make sense?
