It was contemplated before and seems likely to get in under the guise of a
LoggingAspect. So you configure logging on per-task basis, or per type etc.

I am not sure if it was agreed but I believe this would happen before
logging events are sent to a listener. It would be done via underlying task
engine/project engine.

to get this kind of control.

I am not sure what you mean - could you expand?
