That would be fine for manual builds but we also (mainly?) want
to disable it for our nightly builds. Otherwise the logs are
unreadable. If there's an easy way to do it w/o changing the
infrastructure (e.g., setting some environment variable or
using a VisualStudio option) plese let Andrew know. Otherwise,
I think we should disable it by default. I see no benefit in
having it enabled, do you?

That would work too.
