I'm talking about trivialities.

Example 1: I used the out-of-the-box config, and it refused my login.
I might have spent a *long* time trying to figure out whether it was
trying to authenticate me and if so why it failed, if I had been less
familiar with the bland "client denied by server configuration", which
was the only message (let alone clue) in the logs.

Example 2: my first attempt to PUT failed.  I expected it to fail due to
file permissions, which I had intentionally left unset.  I was looking
for an error message that would tell me *what* filesystem access
was attempted.  Nothing!

All with LogLevel Debug.
