bq. I think if only power users can read our logs that's kind of a bad thing? 

Can != Do.

Honestly I don't think there's much _value_ in reading our logs unless you're a power user,
and diagnosing a bug/problem with your cluster. It's mostly a list of flushing/compacting
messages (plus peer connect/disconnect, that kind of thing). We don't not log things because
we think users don't want to see; we don't log because we're too lazy to think about better
log messages, AFAICT. We should just improve our INFO logging IMO, but certainly not ideologically
opposed to this if everyone's bullish.

> [~aweisberg] had the suggestion to keep a separate debug log for aid in troubleshooting,
not intended for regular human consumption but where we can log things that might help if
something goes wrong.
