I need to set this in a script that starts up a bunch of mosh sessions
across my servers at work.  I nest screen (on the remote side) into tmux
(local side), mostly in order to be sure the escape keys are different.
One day I might move to nested tmux sessions once I figure out how to
reliably switch to a different escape in the second level tmux.

Since github requires an account for that I will have to decline.

THe idea was that if no file name was configured (or the wrong one), you
could set one from the extended config dialog so that it is then
possible to enable logging.

Well, a more sustainable strategy would perhaps be to make the supported
feature set configurable, maybe like sort of a theme file.  That file
might even become self-documenting.
