Guess it never came up before. Seems to make sense to be more explicit.

Well, it occurred to me that one reason might be because the command might contain sensitive information such as passwords. I did notice that some code will do a logging.debug(args) before calling, it's not clear to me why this pattern exists.

Also, for some reason with ipa-server-install *no* debug messages are appearing even though standard_logging_setup() is being called which sets the log level to debug. I'm investigating the reason now (perhaps using the wrong logger instance?)

If I were to guess I'd look at ipalib, I think it creates its own loggers. Perhaps it is redirecting them.
